Loan Report: March 6th

We've got goals, goals and more goals this week as some of our out-on-loan Royals got on the score sheet. Elsewhere, we check up on the youngsters that are fully involved in battles against dropping out of the football league, whilst others are in full flow in pushing towards it.

Lasha Dvali - Kasimpasa (Turkish Super Lig) Appearances: 3

Dvali's run of form has coincided with Kasimpasa's, as they recorded their first win in six with a 2-0 victory over last week's opponents, Gaziantepspor. Ezequiel Scarione (36') opened the scoring before Castro made the points safe with four minutes remaining. Kasimpasa stay 8th, but the three points keeps Gatziantepspor, Genclerbiligi, Akhisar Belediye and Sivasspor at arms length below them.

Dom Hyam - Hemel Hemsptead (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 5

Following last week's 5-2 cup win over Watford, Hemel Hempstead were back in action last weekend against Ebbsfleet United. Dominic Hyam played the full 90 minutes as goals from Oliver Hawkins and Jordan Parkes gave Hemel a vital point against a decent United side. Parkes added two more goals to make it three in a week for the goal-scoring midfielder, as Hemel Hempstead thumped Staines Town 4-0, with Matthew Harriott and Ed Asafu-Adjaye adding the other two goals in a resounding victory.

Rob Dickie/Stuart Moore - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 14/37

Last week, both Rob and Stuart played the full 90 minutes, but their Basingstoke side dropped two valuable points in the title race, as they could only manage a 0-0 draw with Concord Rangers.

Tuesday night saw the two back in action against Bath though, as the Reading pair looked to make amends from the weekend's defeat. They did just that though, although they had to work very hard to do it. Young centre-back Dickie but Town ahead with a fine header at the far post from a corner, before Liam Enver-Marum and Lloyd Macklin put Basingstoke 2-0 and then 3-1 up. Andy Watkins made it a nervy end as he struck deep into stoppage time, but Town held on for a crucial win as the race for the title picks up speed. Basingstoke go third, but remain six points behind leaders Bromley.

Jon Henly - Welling United (Vanarama Conference Prem) Appearances: 18

Henly started in goal during last week's match against Nuneaton, but he couldn't prevent yet another defeat for his Welling side, as they slipped into the relegation zone following Alfreton's 1-0 victory over AFC Telford. A solitary Adam Walker goal shortly after half-time was enough in this one, as Welling stretched their 10-game winless run into March.

Aaron Tshibola - Hartlepool United (SkyBet League Two) Appearances: 11

Tshibola's Hartlepool faced Craig Tanner's Wimbledon side last weekend as the two Reading loanees faced up to each other for the first time in competitive football. Fortunately for the 'Pools, it was Tshibola who came out on top, as a Ryan Bird goal separated the two sides at full time, leaving United seven points adrift at the bottom of League Two now.

Tish's side didn't have such luck on Tuesday though, as his side went down 2-0 to Dagenham and Redbridge, as a Scott Harrison own goal and a Billy Bingham strike either side of half time gave Dagenham all three points.

Craig Tanner - AFC Wimbledon (SkyBet League Two) Appearances: 7

Tanner started both matches for Wimbledon last week, lasting 73 minutes in their 1-0 defeat to Tshibola's Hartlepool, and 68 minutes against Southend United, as the two sides played out a 0-0 draw to leave the 'Dons 11th.

Dominic Samuel - Coventry City (SkyBet League One) Appearances: 6

Calls for Dominic Samuel to be recalled from his loan have surely been heard by the club this week, as Samuel continued his fine goal-scoring touch with the winner in manager-less Coventry's shock 2-1 win over second place MK Dons. Chris Stokes opened the scoring and, three minutes later, Samuel made it 2-0 after just 12 minutes, with a smart left-footed finish after receiving a difficult ball on the edge of the box. Daniel Powell made it 2-1 in the 56th minute, but City held on for the three points that saw them climb out of the four.

However, Tuesday night saw his side concede a solitary goal, as Barnsley's George Waring scored what turned out to be the winner just before the hour mark, as the new Coventry manager Tony Mowbray watched from the stands. Despite the defeat, Coventry stay just above the relegation zone in 20th.


With a first ever professional goal, Rob Dickie becomes the latest player to win the 'loanee of the week' award. He powered in a headed opener in Basingstoke's 3-2 win over Bath City. Special mention to Dom Samuel for continuing his fine form for Coventry, and to Lasha Dvali, after another clean sheet for Kasimpasa.
