Helan returns from Sheffield Wednesday

Helan returns from Sheffield Wednesday
Jeremy Helan continued to be an integral part of the Sheffield Wednesday revival right up until his last appearance.

Helan played the full 90 minutes of the Owls’ disappointing 0-0 draw with Wolves at Hillsborough.

Alex Nimely began his Crystal Palace career with a 0-0 draw against Blackpool as Ian Holloway’s side drew a blank with his former club 

He played 52 minutes of the game before being withdrawn as The Eagles fruitlessly sought a breakthrough.

Paul Dickov took on Uwe Rosler in the battle of the former Blues at Boundary Park and it was Rosler’s Brentford who took all three points with two second-half goals from ex-Crewe striker Clayton Donaldson.

With Shaleum Logan and Lee Croft also involved, on loan Reece Wabara must have felt quite at home during the mini-City fest.

Don't forget that Dickov will be our special guest for a dinner alongside Dietmar Hamann at the Etihad Stadium on 31 January.

Wayne Bridge’s Brighton drew 2-2 with Birmingham City, while Adam Drury played all of Burton Albion’s 1-0 defeat at Northampton Town.

Leaving the confines of the English leagues, Ryan McGivern saw his loan deal extended until the end of the season and took part in Hibs' 1-1 draw with Dundee, though Abdi Ibrahim and Luca Scapuzzi both were absent as Stromgodset lost a pre-season friendly 3-1 and Varese beat Grosseto 4-0 respectively.

In La Liga, the Blues’ highest profile player out on loan, Roque Santa Cruz, played an hour of Malaga’s 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo and Mohammed Abu sat out Rayo Vallecano’s 2-0 defeat at Granada.

Omar Elabdellaoui, whose loan spell with Feyenoord ended last week, has joined Bundesliga side Eintracht Braunschwig until the summer.
