Join us for another edition of Loan Watch as we take a look at the Jambos in action throughout the leagues...

Cup agony for Currie’s East Fife

East Fife’s impressive run in the Irn-Bru Cup came to an end on Friday night in Dingwall.

The League One side exited the competition at the semi-final stage, losing 2-1 to Ross County.

Rory Currie made a 74th minute appearance as the Fifers chased an equaliser. Anton Dowds pulled one back after the Staggies had opened up a two-goal cushion through Daniel Armstrong and Declan McManus but it proved a stretch too far for Darren Young’s side, leaving County to face Welsh outfit Connah’s Quay in the final.


Pars punish promotion-chasing Caley

Anthony McDonald made his third appearance for Inverness Caledonian Thistle, however it was Dunfermline that came out on top as two ex-Hearts coaches faced off.

Stevie Crawford’s side emerged victorious at East End Park against John Robertson’s visitors, thanks to Joe Thomson’s 47th minute long-range strike.

McDonald was introduced to the game on 34 minutes, replacing Darren McCauley.

ICT sit in fourth place in the Championship, three points ahead of Queen of the South and Greenock Morton.



Wasps stung by Thistle

Alloa Athletic suffered a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Hearts’ upcoming Scottish Cup opponents, Partick Thistle.

Dario Zanatta played the full 90 minutes as goals in either half from Blair Spittal and new signing Scott McDonald sent Alloa to the bottom of the table.

The game was Zanatta’s 28th of the season, and he has six goals to his name.



Henderson tops Moore

Euan Henderson’s Montrose came up trumps against Lewis Moore’s Forfar as the battle for promotion in League One hots up.

Moore played 64 minutes before being replaced by Connor Coupe, while Henderson was introduced in the 61st minute and won the penalty that killed the game with two minutes remaining. Martin Rennie slotted from the spot to double Montrose’s lead after Craig Johnston had opened the scoring in the first half.

Montrose are 5th in table, three points off East Fife in the final play-off spot, while Forfar remain third, joint on points with second-place Raith Rovers.
