Loan Watch

4th November 2019

Six players were in action this week for their loan sides, with Chris Hamilton and Connor Smith featuring twice for the Blue Brazil.

Olly Lee - Gillingham

The English midfielder was a second-half sub, coming on with 23 minutes left to play of the Gills' clash with Rotherham. By that point, Steve Evans' side were already 2-0 down thanks to goals from Michael Smith (not that one) and former Rangers midfielder Matt Crooks - who got his second and Rotherham's third two minutes before the end. The final score was 3-0, leaving Gillingham in 16th - six points clear of the relegation zone.
