Donacien Returns to Accrington on Loan
Friday, 18th Jan 2019 13:40
Blues defender Janoi Donacien has returned to his former club Accrington Stanley on loan for the rest of the season.
The 25-year-old St Lucian joined the Blues from Stanley for a fee of £750,000 in the summer under Paul Hurst - a deal which was only recently confirmed after the defender received his permanent leave to remain - but hasn’t featured at all since Paul Lambert, his one-time Aston Villa boss, took charge at Portman Road.
“It’s a boost to have Janoi back,” Stanley manager John Coleman told their official site. “I am sure he has missed not playing regularly and being around the lads here.
“I think Janoi can play higher than League One but it has been hard at Ipswich as they had a lot of players making the step up at once. It’s great to have him back as we know what he can do.”
Donacien, who helped Accrington to the League Two title last season, could make his second debut for the Lancastrians tomorrow when they face Charlton Athletic at the Valley.

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
