Loan watch - Tom tops the lot!

Posted on 12 January 2015  - 09:30

Tom Carroll had more touches of the ball and completed more passes than any other Premier League player at the weekend as he helped Swansea City battle back from a goal down to draw 1-1 with West Ham United.

Our on-loan midfielder enjoyed a lively outing at the Liberty Stadium, touching the ball 123 times and completing 99 passes during the 90 minutes – stats that could not be matched by anyone else in the top flight.

Elsewhere, Grant Hall made a winning start to life on loan at Blackpool as his side registered a 1-0 home win over Millwall in the Championship.

The defender, who linked up with the Lancashire club last week, went on as a substitute for the injured Darren O’Dea in the 21st minute of the match.

Meanwhile, Alex Pritchard completed 90 minutes for Brentford as they won by the same scoreline at home to Rotherham United – the midfielder seeing a 25-yard drive cannon back off the post in the closing stages – while Milos Veljkovic was an unused substitute for Middlesbrough in their goalless draw at Reading.

There was also a 0-0 draw for Shaq Coulthirst and Southend United in League Two, the forward starting and completing 86 minutes as the Shrimpers shared the spoils with Plymouth Argyle at Roots Hall.
