Loan Watch

Harry Kane netted his first senior goal as our lads on loan at Brisbane Road played a key role in Leyton Orient’s 4-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in League One on Saturday.

The 17-year-old forward was making his first start for the Club he joined for the rest of the season earlier this month.

After Ben Chorley had put the O’s ahead from the penalty spot on 51 minutes, Harry was denied the chance to make it two by Wednesday keeper Nicky Weaver before making no mistake from close range on 57 minutes.

10 minutes later, he nearly doubled his tally but was again denied by Weaver before being replaced by Scott McGleish 20 minutes from time.

And, after Alex Revell netted a third for the O’s, it was time for another Spurs loanee, Paul-Jose M’Poku, to come off the bench and deliver the free-kick that McGleish headed home for 4-0.

Staying in League One, and young full-back Adam Smith played a huge part in handing Lee Bradbury his first win as Bournemouth manager at home to table-topping Brighton.

With the Cherries hanging onto a 1-0 lead following Liam Feeney’s 62nd minute strike, the Seagulls launched a late assault.

Jason Pearce’s slip led to Glenn Murray cutting the ball across goal for Ashley Barnes with the goal gaping, but Smith flung himself in the way of the strike and preserved the clean sheet for the three points that takes Bournemouth into an automatic promotion place.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper David Button could do little to prevent Plymouth’s 2-0 defeat against Charlton at the Valley, while Jon Obika was an unused sub for Peterborough in their 4-0 win over Hartlepool.

In the Championship, Andros Townsend went straight into the Watford starting lineup for their match at Cardiff.

And he played a part in the Hornets’ opener, dummying Danny Graham’s flick on for Will Buckley to finish on 33 minutes.

Unfortunately, Malky Mackay’s men were already 3-0 down by that stage on their way to a 4-2 defeat. Andros was substituted on 65 minutes.

Ryan Mason came off the bench late on for his second Doncaster debut having returned to the Yorkshire club for the rest of the season, but could not prevent a 3-2 defeat at Ipswich.

Meanwhile, Kyle Naughton was involved in plenty of attacking play in Leicester’s 4-2 win over Millwall, and Steven Caulker was solid at the back in Bristol City’s goal-less draw at Crystal Palace.

Finally, David Bentley was in the Birmingham team on the wrong end of a 5-0 defeat against leaders Manchester United in the Premier League.
