Easter Loan Watch

Dean Parrett scored his first goal for Charlton on Monday to round off a big weekend of Football League action for our on loan players.

The 19-year-old midfielder drilled home into the bottom corner to restore the Addicks’ lead at home to Rochdale in League One on their way to a 3-1 victory.

It was Dean’s first strike since joining the South London club on loan in March on what was his eighth appearance. He scored his first senior goal during a spell at Plymouth earlier this season.

There were no other Spurs loanees on the scoresheet over the Easter Bank Holiday period, but plenty were in action.

Few had a better weekend than winger Andros Townsend, who impressed in back-to-back wins for Millwall over Preston on Saturday and Scunthorpe on Monday that takes the Lions to within two points of a Championship Play-Off place.

But for Jake Livermore and Leeds, the hope of achieving a top six finish appeared to end after being held at home by Reading on Friday and suffering defeat at Crystal Palace on Monday. The midfielder started both of those games.

And it was an even more forgettable weekend for Bongani Khumalo, who turned his ankle and limped off after 42 minutes of Preston’s defeat at Millwall before sitting out Monday’s home defeat against Cardiff that resulted in relegation to League One.

Staying in the division, Kyle Naughton played both games for Leicester as they put the disappointment of a last minute derby defeat at Nottingham Forest on Friday behind them with a 4-2 win over Watford on Monday.

And there was a rare start for Ryan Mason as Doncaster moved a step closer to securing their safety with a 2-2 draw at Barnsley.

Back into League One, and Adam Smith played both games for Bournemouth as they stayed within the Play-Off positions with an away draw at Yeovil and a home win over Bristol Rovers.

But Leyton Orient are only three points behind them in seventh after back-to-back wins over Peterborough and Carlisle. Harry Kane started the first of those but was an unused sub for the latter, alongside Tom Carroll.

At the other end of the table, David Button impressed and kept two clean sheets as Plymouth continue their brave fight against relegation with a pair of 1-0 wins over Dagenham & Redbridge and MK Dons.

Meanwhile, Jon Obika played the majority of their back-to-back 2-2 draws with Bournemouth and Peterborough, and Nathan Byrne made a substitute appearance for Brentford over the weekend.

Overseas, Simon Dawkins played 80 minutes for the San Jose Earthquakes as they were defeated by Chivas USA in the MLS.

Of the more senior players, Kyle Walker delivered the cross from which Darren Bent earned Aston Villa a point at home to Stoke in the Premier League, while Jamie O’Hara and Robbie Keane played as Wolves and West Ham battle relegation.

David Bentley came off the bench in the second half but could do little to prevent Birmingham losing 5-0 at Liverpool, while Giovani Dos Santos was on the wrong end of a 2-1 home defeat for Racing Santander against Malaga in La Liga.
