Lasha Dvali - Kasimpasa (Turkish Super Lig) Appearances: 7

Dvali remained an unused substitute again this week as his Kasimpasa side shocked 5th placed Bursaspor 5-3 to put a dent in their challenge for Europe. With 5 games to go, Kasimpasa still aren't mathematically safe, but the eleven point gap should be more than enough to ensure survival.

Rob Dickie/Stuart Moore - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South Play-Offs) Appearances: 24/48

Dickie and Moore both started in Basingstoke's crucial play-off second leg against Whitehawk last week, with the score finely poised at 0-0 from the first leg. Shortly after half-time, Jake Robinson struck for Whitehawk to break Basingstoke hearts and deny them a chance to gain promotion to the Conference. Despite the defeat, many fans like the one below took to social media to have their say on an outstanding season from both Stuart and Rob;

Moore said that he had

"really enjoyed this season and have lots of great memories to take away. It's a great squad and a great club with great fans!"

while Dickie also added that it had been a

"good experience on loan at Basingstoke. It's a shame we couldn't get to the play off final"

Aaron Tshibola - Hartlepool United (SkyBet League Two) Appearances: 24

With survival secured a week prior to this game, Hartlepool could have been forgiven for rolling over against Carlisle in the last game of the season, and it looked like that was happening, as Carlisle went 3-0 up inside half an hour in this contest. But if the first half an hour of this match was like Hartlepool's first half of the season, then the final 30 minutes was much like the second half of their campaign, as goals from Jordan Hugill (63', 86') and Michael Duckworth (64') gave Hartlepool an unlikely point. Tshibola claimed two assists for both Hugill goals, with his first rebounded in by the striker from Tshibola's shot, before the Reading loanee crossed for Hugill to tap in the equalizer with just five minutes to spare.

Craig Tanner - AFC Wimbledon (SkyBet League Two) Appearances: 19

Tanner played 72 minutes in Wimbledon's last game of the season, as his Wimbledon side battled back to take a 1-1 draw with Cheltenham. They finish 15th.

After the game, Craig took to Instagram to thank the fans for supporting him throughout his stay;

"It's been an absolute pleasure and privilege to be given the chance to come on loan to AFC Wimbledon, I have enjoyed every moment and they have helped me move on leaps and bounds as a player, I would like to thank Neil Ardley, his staff and all the players for making me feel so welcome and the help and advice they put in, predicting big things from the Dons next season!"

Jake Taylor - Leyton Orient (SkyBet League One) Appearances: 3

Taylor was absent from Orient's match-day squad for their last game of the season against Swindon, with his loanee's club needing to win AND hope that other result's went their way to avoid relegation from League One. Unfortunately, they surrendered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2, and with Colchester winning, Orient were relegated into League Two.

On his Taylor's brief stay, one fan summarized his stay, suggesting that he

"wasn't given much of a chance tbh, can't form an opinion on him, probably better off elsewhere"

Danny Guthrie - Fulham (SkyBet Championship) Appearances: 6

Guthrie played the full 90 minutes of Fulham's final game of a frustrating campaign, sitting at the base of a midfield diamond as his side lost 4-2 to Norwich. He was booked in the 90th minute for a foul on Graham Dorrans.

LOANEE OF THE WEEK:

With so many of the players' seasons ending last week, only seven players were in action this week, but Aaron Tshibola's two assists helped Hartlepool claw back a 3-0 deficit in his final game for the 'Pools, earning him the loanee of the week.

Look out next week for my in-depth analysis of every player's loan spell over the past year, as well as my opinion on what's in store for each player next season and the results of our 'Loanee of the Season' in the final loan report of 2014/15. Sad times.
