Posted on 6 March 2013  - 10:01

Adam Smith was back in the starting line-up for Millwall on Tuesday night - just five days before his loan team play for a place at Wembley in the FA Cup.

Loan watch - midweek update

The full-back played the full 90 minutes but it wasn't the best of nights for the Lions as they suffered a 2-0 home defeat against Wolves in the Championship at the New Den.

Adam will now hope to keep his place as Millwall host Blackburn - and a possible meeting with David Bentley - in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday. The semi-finals are at Wembley.

Blackburn were also in action on Tuesday night and David was an unused substitute in a 1-0 loss at Bolton.

Harry Kane played 90 minutes and had an early chance as Leicester City left it late to grab an equaliser against Leeds United - it ended 1-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Finally, Jon Obika came off the bench in the 73rd minute as Charlton drew 2-2 against Peterborough United at London Road.


Heurelho Gomes faced the mighty Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

The goalkeeper currently on loan at Hoffenheim actually captained the team in a 1-0 loss against the runaway leaders.

Bayern didn't turn on the style that impressed so much in the Champions League at the Emirates recently, but they still stretched their lead to 17 points from Borussia Dortmund with the only goal of the game from Mario Gomez in the 38th minute.

Staying abroad, Bongani Khumalo played 67 minutes as PAOK beat Panionios 4-2 to stay third in the Greek Super League.

Yago Falque played 83 minutes as Almeria beat Hercules de Alicante 2-0 in the Segunda Division of La Liga while Souleymane Coulibaly was an unused substitute as Grosseto caused a shock by beating leaders Sassuolo 2-0 in Italy's Serie B.

Jon Obika made his first start for Charlton and played 63 minutes as Charlie Austin's screamer won it for visitors Burnley in the Championship.

Harry Kane had an eventful game for Leicester at Ipswich. He almost scored a wonder goal in the first half - flicking the ball over one defender and then beating another before volleying wide - and then had a goal disallowed for offside. He then sidefooted his best chance inches wide before the home side grabbed a last-minute winner at Portman Road.

David Bentley was withdrawn at half-time as Blackburn lost 3-2 at home to Peterborough United while Adam Smith was an unused substitute as Millwall lost 1-0 at Leeds.

In League Two, Jordan Archer made key saves from Gareth Evans and Junior Brown with the scoreline goalless against Fleetwood before Wycombe scored the winner in the final minute at Adams Park. Jordan then made another save in added time from Jon Parkin.

In the Premier League, Andros Townsend was an unused substitute as QPR beat Southampton.
