Just like the main squad it wasn't a great weekend for many of Reading's loanees, with four players failing to make it onto the pitch and just one of the four that played ending up on the winning side. Despite those disappointments, we look at how each of our loanees got on this past week in our loan report.
Goalkeeper Andersen endured a disappointing day at Fratton Park as Portsmouth slipped to a 2-1 home defeat to Walsall. He made a couple of routine saves in the first half but was beaten by two fantastic strikes from outside the box which he couldn't do much about.
Obita was serving the final game of his 3 match suspension picked up for his red card against Oldham so wasn't able to feature in this one.
Williams was an unused sub as Woking won 2-1 at Stockport, a place where Williams spent an unsuccesful loan spell a couple of years ago. I haven't been on the training ground nor have I seen how he's done on a minute by minute basis but the fact that at 24 years old he can't get into a Conference starting lineup does not bode well at all for the former Eastleigh man. Right now this is looking one of those low cost punts that just isn't going to pan out. Still, Williams has plenty of time to prove me wrong and I'd be delighted if he started tearing things up.
