Loan Watch

18th November 2019

It was a quiet weekend for the Loan Watch, with four players in action for their sides.

Olly Lee - Gillingham

After staying on the bench during the mid-week EFL Trophy win over Tottenham Under-23s, Olly started and played 89 minutes in the 1-0 over Lincoln City. Mickael Mandron scored to give Steve Evans' side the win, lifting them to 14th in League One - six points off a play-off place.

Chris Hamilton and Connor Smith - Cowdenbeath

Both Chris and Connor played the full 90, and got booked, in a hot-tempered 1-0 win over Queen's Park in Fife. Former Jambo youngster Robbie Buchanan put the Blue Brazil ahead. David Cox then saw red after two yellow cards, with Ross Finnie then sent off moments from the end with a straight red. Gary Bollan's side are still third, four points behind Edinburgh City.

Two youth players almost met as Spartans took on Bonnyrigg Rose on Friday night. Leeroy was introduced with six minutes left to play, with his side leading. However, two late Rose goals turned the game around, with Dan Baur's side winning 3-2.
