POMPEY currently have seven players out on loan. We take a look at how they are faring.

Milan Lalkovic – Ross County

Milan Lalkovic played the full 90 minutes for Ross County in his side’s 2-1 defeat to St Johnstone, but wasn’t able to find the target. That’s Lalkovic’s sixth appearance since joining the Staggies last month.

Ben Close – Eastleigh

Midfielder Close was an unused subs in Eastleigh’s 2-0 loss at home to Tranmere.

Ex-Pompey winger, Ben Tollitt, scored the first goal with a low strike beyond Graham Stack an hour into proceedings. Tollitt then turned provider late on, setting up James Norwood.

Alex Bass – Salisbury

The goalkeeper was unable to keep a clean sheet as Salisbury hammered Swindon Supermarine 6-1 away from home.

Bass was beaten early on as the home team took the lead from Brad Hooper’s strike on the edge of the box.

Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain

– Eastbourne

Oxlade-Chamberlain was not in the squad for Eastbourne’s 2-0 win over 10-man Gosport Borough at Priory Lane.

The Pompey Academy graduate hasn’t featured since impressing in Eastbourne’s 2-2 draw with Hampton & Richmond at the start of the month.

Calvin Davies – Bognor

Davies stayed on the bench as Bognor picked up a 2-0 victory away from home to Wingate and Finchley.

Chad Field opened the scoring by tapping in from close range on the 60th minute, before James Crane nodded Bognor into a 2-0 lead with just four minutes remaining.

The win sees the Rocks stay top of the Ryman League Premier – four points clear of Hawks.

Adam May – Sutton

Sutton saw their amazing FA Cup run ended by Arsenal last night.

May was in the side for the 2-0 home defeat to the Premier League giants.

The 19-year-old has impressed since going to Gander Green Lane, helping Sutton reach the fifth round of competition for the first time in their 118-year history.

Michael Smith – Northampton

Smith started in the Cobblers’ 2-2 draw with Southend. Smith has failed to score in three starts and one outing off the bench since joining Northampton.
