Loan watch: Mixed fortunes for Pompey men away from Fratton
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.
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.
