There was an FA Cup goal and a long-haul flight to contend with in this week's Loan Watch.

Olly Lee - Gillingham

Olly started and scored for the Gills in their 1-1 draw with Sunderland in the FA Cup. Aidan McGeady put the Black Cats ahead at the Stadium of Light before Olly's 46th minute strike. The midfielder was teed off from a free-kick, with his shot squirming away from Jon McLaughlin's grasp.
