Loanee Round Up - 20/3/10

Last updated : 22 March 2010 By Dan Buxton

Steve Simonsen

Made his debut and played the full game as Sheffield United drew 1-1 away at Doncaster.

After being beaten in the opening minutes he pulled off three fantastic saves, diving full stretch to tip shots around the post, to keep his side in the match before a late equaliser.

Showed how he is a top level Championship keeper with this performance after so long on the sidelines.

Ibrahima Sonko

Wasn't included in the squad for Hull's game

Ryan Shotton

Played the full 90 minutes a Barnsley lost 1-0 away at Ipswich. Had a decent, if unspectacular, game but was unlucky for the goal as, after a mix up with the keeper on the wing, a shot hit the post and rebounded straight to an Ipswich attacker who stroked it home. Shotton had ran back and attempted to cut out the initial effort only for the rebound to take it away from him.

Talk around Oakwell is that a deal has been agreed for a permanent move for Carl Dickinson in the summer and that Ryan Shotton is willing to return to Barnsley next term, whether it be on loan or on a permanent deal.

Carl Dickinson

Missed the game with the knee injury that looks certain to end his season

Michael Tonge 

Played the whole game as Derby drew 0-0 with Sheffield Wednesday.

Set up a few opportunities with some good through balls and dangerous set pieces but the attackers were unable to capitalise on it and put the ball away. Rams supporters have Tonge down as the main man in the side right now, who is key to them creating anything in a game.

Tom Soares

Played the full game as Sheffield Wednesday drew 0-0 with Derby. Had one effort that forced the keeper into a good save and looked lively throughout, an improvement on his recent showings that have lacked creativity.

Andy Griffin

Was back in the Reading side after recent injury and had a solid game as the Royals drew 1-1 at Middlesbrough.

Reading were pushed back for long periods and the defender had to stand firm to make sure his side gained a vital point. 

Ben Marshall

Played the full game as Carlisle blew an early two goal lead to draw 2-2 with Southend.

Marshall netted a close range header, drifting in front of the defender to glance a cross past the keeper before missing a one on one chance to make it 3-0, only for Southend to go down the field and net to get back in the game.

Showed electric pace and i getting better each and every week according to the Cumbrian fans although he will be forced to sit out next week as he is cup tied for the Johnstone Paints Trophy final.

Danzelle St.Louis-Hamilton

Played the first 18 minutes for Worcester City, who drew 0-0 with St.Albans City, before he had to be replaced after picking up an ankle injury.

He had little to do in his time on the pitch, with no saves of note.

Diego Arismendi

Was injured and missed Brighton's game but is back in training and should be back playing soon.
