Huddersfield Town striker Jonathan Stead was the most successful Terriers loanee this weekend, as he opened his Bradford City account in a 2-1 defeat to Doncaster Rovers.
Stead opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time after neat work from Billy Knott and Mark Yeates before firing home from 15 yards to send the Bantams in at the break in front.
But Yorkshire rivals Doncaster came storming back in the second half and secured all three points thanks to goals from Reece Wabara and Curtis Main to leave Bradford winless in five and 14th in League One.
Stead’s Terriers goals this season came at Chesterfield in the 5-3 Capital One Cup success in August and the 2-1 reverse at home to Middlesbrough in Chris Powell's first game in charge back in September.

Jake Carroll received his third booking during his loan spell at Partick Thistle during the Jags' entertaining 3-3 draw at Hamilton Academical as his side were forced to settle for a share of the spoils despite coming from 2-0 down to lead 3-2.
A late, late equaliser from Tony Andreu added to two opening goals from Darian McKinnon and Danny Redmond before Jordan McMillan, James Craigen and Christie Elliott hit back for Carroll's side.
Oscar Gobern made his third successive appearance for Chesterfield and played for 81 minutes in a 0-0 draw with Yeovil Town and helped to end the Spireites' three-game losing run.
Danny Carr also started for League Two outfit Mansfield Town and got 60 minutes under his belt, but was unable to prevent Southend United from sealing a 2-1 win at the One Call Stadium.
Matt Crooks, meanwhile, was an unused substitute as his Hartlepool United side battled back from two goals down to secure a late 2-2 draw at home to Newport County.
