Aiden McGeady made to wait for his first Charlton Athletic start after Sunderland exile
Aiden McGeady will be made to wait for his Charlton Athletic debut.
The winger joined the Addicks on loan from Sunderland in the early hours of deadline day, with a loan move formalised at 12:30am on Friday.
But the 33-year-old - who was informed in December that he was no longer part of Phil Parkinson’s plans - was an unused substitute as Lee Bowyer’s side beat Barnsley 2-1.
McGeady could make his first appearance for Charlton when they head to Stoke City next weekend.
Meanwhile, it was a productive day for Sunderland loanees Jack Baldwin and Jack Diamond - who both helped their temporary sides to crucial points away from home.
Baldwin played the full 90 minutes as Salford City left it late to claim a 1-1 draw at Port Vale - with Tom Elliott’s header cancelling-out Cameron Burgess’ own goal.
Diamond and Harrogate, meanwhile, claimed a 1-1 draw at Aldershot Town. The Sunderland youngster played 52 minutes of the clash which saw Lloyd Kerry’s second half strike claim a point on the road for Simon Weaver’s men.
Jordan Hunter was also involved in a draw, as South Shields shared the spoils with Stalybridge Celtic.
The full-back played the entire game as Shields twice surrendered the lead in North Yorkshire - as they dropped some crucial points in the promotion race.
Lee Connelly was an unused substitute as Alloa Athletic sprung a shock and claimed a 1-1 with Inverness Caledonian Thistle - with Alloa having led for large parts of the clash.
