Loan Watch

29th April 2019

Well folks, it's been a while. So, to make up for that, we're going to give you a quick overview of how our loan stars have been doing in the second-half of the year as we enter the final few weeks of the season.

Anthony McDonald (Inverness Caledonian Thistle)

The winger joined John Robertson's side in January and - despite injury - has excelled in the Highlands. 

In eleven appearances for Caley, he's scored one goal - his first in professional football - and what a goal it was. In a 2-2 draw with Morton at Cappielow, Anthony scored the first goal after dancing past a number of 'Ton defenders before curling home off the post. 

 

Unfortunately, Anthony had to sit out the Scottish Cup semi-final as he could not play against his parent club, but his performances have helped the Caley Jags retain their play-off place. They currently sit in fourth, level on points with Ayr United, but just behind on goal difference.

This weekend, he started against Alloa in the 2-1 win at Recreation Park against our next loan star...

Dario Zanatta (Alloa Athletic)

Back in the new year, after winning the Ladbrokes Championship Player of the Month award for December, Dario renewed his loan deal at Alloa until the end of the season.

Since then, he's added another two goals and five assists to his record - taking his total for the the season to eight goals and two assists.

This weekend, he helped Alloa take the lead against Inverness when he was fouled in the box, meaning Alan Trouten could score from the spot. However, Jim Goodwin's side could not hold onto the lead and lost 2-1.

That means that they're still in the relegation play-off spot - three points ahead of Falkirk but with a goal difference one worse than their rivals.

 

Euan Henderson (Montrose)

Another who renewed their loan deal until the end of the season, Euan has scored five goals in 30 appearances for the Gable Endies.

He has scored twice since January - the first coming in a 5-2 win over relegation candidates Brechin City and the second in a 3-1 win over Stranraer.

 

The 18-year-old now faces a tough play-off against Raith Rovers after East Fife's 1-1 draw with Stenhousemuir confirmed fourth place for Stewart Petrie's men.

Lewis Moore (Forfar Athletic)

Lewis faced off against his Hearts teammate Euan on Saturday as Forfar ran out 1-0 winners. The result kept the Loons ahead of Raith Rovers and means they go into the final weekend of the season in second place.

The winger has played 29 times for Forfar this season and since January he's added a goal and three assists to his record.

His most recent goal came in a 2-1 win over eventual league champions Arbroath in one of the many Angus derbies this season.

 

Rory Currie (East Fife)

Unfortunately, Rory has not played a great deal since January as he has struggled with a knee injury. Eventually, he had to get surgery and he travelled down to London with Aidan Keena and Callumn Morrison as they all went under the knife on the same day.

He will now miss the rest of the season, but in total Rory played 24 times for the Fifers and scored 7 goals.
