Is Jon Nolan About to Break the Loan Jinx?

Two matches is a very small sample size so perhaps I should guard against getting carried away. However, our last two matches suggest that Jon Nolan has the capability to become that most rare of things – a successful loan signing. In fact, the current crop of loanees are shaping up quite well.
