Loan watch - update
18 February 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Ryan Fredericks and Bongani Khumalo picked up a point apiece with their respective loan clubs in the Championship over the weekend.
Ryan played 90 minutes for Millwall as they bagged a late equaliser to draw 1-1 against Bolton Wanderers, while Bongani was in action for Doncaster Rovers as their match with Barnsley ended all square at 2-2.
On Sunday, Benoit Assou-Ekotto was part of the Queens Park Rangers side that lost 3-1 to Reading, the left-back being substituted with 12 minutes remaining.
Elsewhere, Alex Pritchard lined up for Swindon Town as they battled to a goalless draw with Colchester United in League One on Friday night.
Meanwhile, two of our lads were in action abroad over the weekend. Cristian Ceballos played in FC Arouca’s 1-1 draw with Nacional in the Portuguese top flight, being substituted in stoppage time, while Yago Falque was in the Rayo Vallecano side that was beaten 6-0 by Barcelona in Spain’s La Liga.
UPDATE – MONDAY GAMES
There was heartbreak for Alex Pritchard on Monday night as his Swindon Town side let slip the advantage he gave them in the second leg of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy southern area final against Peterborough United – his side eventually losing on penalties.
The tie had been level at 2-2 following the first leg but when Alex (pictured) fired the Robins in front after 32 minutes it looked like being Swindon’s night. However, after Peterborough levelled in the second half the tie went straight to penalties and, despite Alex converting his spot kick, Peterborough won the shootout 4-3.
Elsewhere, Spurs colleagues Jake Livermore and Jon Obika briefly faced each other as Hull City snatched a late equaliser to take their FA Cup fifth round tie against Brighton & Hove Albion to a replay.
Jake started the game for Hull and was on the pitch at the same time as Jon during a three-minute window towards the end of the game; Jon was introduced off the bench for Brighton with 11 minutes left, before Jake was withdrawn three minutes later. The match finished 1-1 and the two sides will try again next week.
