Lewis Wing helped Rotherham United out of the league’s relegation zone on Saturday and is confident he can stay there.
Wing provided the winning goal assist on their full debut for the Millers as they beat Preston North End 2-1 to come out of the bottom three.
After coming off the bench in the midweek victory over Derby County, Wing started for his new side for the first time at Deepdale and his side took the lead after just one minute thanks to a goal against his Joe Rafferty camp. And ten minutes into the break, they doubled their lead, with Wing giving the ball to Ben Wiles to score.
And while Ched Evans halved the deficit with 25 minutes remaining, Paul Warne’s side held on for all three important points.
Boro Loanee Wing said afterwards: “It won’t be easy to stand up, but I think we have enough in this dressing room to stay out of the last three.
“It’s great to be out of the last three and to make my full debut, it was a great win. I just joined but the group is very positive and I feel like it’s going to be good for the future.
It’s now two out of two wins for Wing at Rotherham.
There was less success for the other Boro boys on loan, although Isaiah Jones capped her Queen of the South debut with a goal.
Jones gave Queen of the South a halftime lead in Alloa, but the home side fought back to win 2-1 in the Scottish Championship clash.
It wasn’t until eight minutes after his debut that Jones hit. His pressure forced Alloa’s midfielder to make a mistake and he continued his team-mates’ efforts to take the lead, but Alloa’s second-half retaliation doomed the team. Allan Johnston in defeat.
Jones tweeted after: “Obviously that’s not the result we wanted today after a brilliant display in the first half, but we’re going to brush our teeth and start over and get it right the next game. .
“But on a personal note, happy to have scored for my debut, I hope many more to come.”
Boro has two players on loan at Crewe Alexandra, but Nathan Wood and Ste Walker were both on the bench for their Ligue 1 loss to Peterborough.
Wood went unused and awaited his debut while Walker played 31 minutes in the 2-0 loss.
One division down in Ligue 2, Rumarn Burrell had little time to make an impact as Bradford City lost 3-2 to Exeter. He came off the bench four minutes from time.
