Reading FC Loan Report: April 3rd

It's been a busy week this week, as the emergency loan deadline passed for clubs in the Football League, as well as a number of our loan players heading off on international duty.

Lasha Dvali - Kasimpasa (Turkish Super Lig) Appearances: 6

Dvali's Kasimpasa side haven't had a fixture since March 21st, but Lasha was in action for Georgia last week, as he came on as an early substitute against the World Champions, Germany, who eventually saw off a stubborn Georgian performance 2-0.

Dom Hyam - Hemel Hempstead (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 9

Hyam returned from International duty for Hemel's visit to promotion-chasing Boreham Wood last week but couldn't prevent his side slipping to a 1-0 defeat.

****

George McLennan - Hayes and Yeading (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 2

McLennan's second game for Hayes produced a clean sheet for the young defender, as him and his team-mates held Bath City to a stalemate on Tuesday night.

Stuart Moore/Rob Dickie - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 17/41

With Dickie away with England's U19 squad, Basingstoke slipped to a shock home defeat to 13th placed Wealdstone to damage their chances of catching the league leaders, Boreham Wood. Wes Parker put Wealdstone in front, before Manny Williams equalised for the host, but Luke O'Nien and Jefferson Louis gave Wealdstone a 3-1 lead. Lloyd Macklin looked to have given Basingstoke a chance to snatch a point in the 76th minute, but Tom Hamblin secured the points for Wealdstone.

Jon Henly - Welling United (Vanarama Conference Prem) Appearances: 22

Welling United slipped further towards relegation last week, as they lost 2-0 at home to Grimsby. Welling are now seven points adrift of safety.

****

Dan Lincoln - Nuneaton Town (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 2

Speaking of sides who look doomed for relegation, Nuneaton Town sit just one place and one point above Henly's Welling in the Conference, and despite their 2-0 victory over Wrexham last week, Dan Lincoln couldn't help his temporary side to another victory as they lost 2-1 to a resurgent Halifax Town. Dan now returns to Reading as Nuneaton's Max Crocombe returns from International duty with New Zealand.

Aaron Tshibola - Hartlepool United (SkyBet League Two) Appearances: 17

For the first time since Tshibola signed, Hartlepool are out of the relegation zone. Tshibola played 80 minutes in a win over Cambridge. Today he overcame a groin injury to help the Monkey Hangers get an impressive 2-2 draw away to Newport County. Tshibola is fast becoming a bit of cult hero at Hartlepool.

Craig Tanner - AFC Wimbledon (SkyBet League Two) Appearances: 13

It's going to be mid-table mediocrity for Wimbledon this season, and their form is showing that at the minute. One win, two draws and one loss in their last four highlights this. They drew 1-1 with strugglers Tranmere last week before again drawing at home to Northampton today. Tanner lasted 82 minutes against Tranmere but played the full game against Northampton.

****

Dom Samuel - Coventry City (SkyBet League One) Appearances: 13

Dominic started last week's game against Peterborough looking to extend his impressive goal-scoring run for Coventry. He didn't score last weekend, but a solitary Blair Turgott goal did give his side a valuable win to ease their lingering relegation fears. In midweek, Samuel had the chance to impress in front of the TV cameras though, but his game - and season - was brought to an abrupt and heart-breaking end, as he limped off after just ten minutes under a challenge from Josh Wright. He later confirmed a fractured ankle, and his season was over. Ironically, Wright scored the winner in the 78th minute, but Coventry stay 3 points clear of the relegation zone.

****

Jake Taylor - Leyton Orient (SkyBet League One) Appearances: 2

Taylor joined Leyton Orient until the end of the season on deadline day, and made his debut soon after on the right wing in Orient's 3-1 win over Port Vale. The Wales international played 86 minutes though it doesn't look like he was too impressive going by the tweet below. He did have a hand in Orient's second, heading a cross across goal which was turned in by a Vale defender. Taylor played another 59 minutes on Wednesday as Orient beat Dominic Samuel's Coventry.

Danny Guthrie - Fulham (SkyBet Championship) Appearances: 0

Alongside Jake Taylor, Danny Guthrie departed on the day of the loan deadline. With his contract running out in the summer, it is unlikely we'll see Guthrie turn out in a Reading shirt again, but we still wish him all the best until the end of the season.

LOANEE OF THE WEEK:

This week, Aaron Tshibola gets the loanee of the week award, as his helped his Hartlepool side defy the odds and climb out of the relegation zone in League Two.
