Owls loan duo feature in 2.Bundesliga

18 May 2020

Matt Penney and Joost van Aken both resumed their campaign on loan in 2. Bundesliga over the weekend.

Penney joined St Pauli on a season-long loan last August to link back up with former Owls manager Jos Luhukay.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the German leagues postponed all fixtures in early March but returned over the weekend with St Pauli at home to FC Nuremberg.

Penney was named in the starting line-up and featured for 67 minutes as his loan club registered a 1-0 win to move up to ninth in the table.

The Wednesday academy product has enjoyed a productive loan spell in Germany with 14 St Pauli appearances under his belt and one goal which came in the big derby clash away at Hamburg.

Defender Van Aken is also on loan in the same division - 2.Bundesliga – for VFL Osnabruck.

For Van Aken and co. it was a tough restart against big rivals and league leaders Armenia Bielefeld.

Van Aken started for Osnabruck in the derby and was at the heart of the early action when bringing down Fabian Klos in the box after 16 minutes. The same man picked himself up to convert the resulting penalty.

But Osnabruck hit a 93rd minute equaliser to rescue a point with Marcos Alvarez on target.

It was an important point for Osnabruck, who are now two points above the relegation zone.
