The Loan Report: March 29 – April 2

The final international break of the season gave way to a busy Easter schedule across Europe with Marco van Ginkel adding another goal to his tally, as PSV move closer to securing the Eredivisie title, whilst Nathan struck in another big game in Portugal.

Headliners

Van Ginkel was the sole goalscorer amongst the Loan Army this week, scoring his 15th of the season in PSV’s handsome 5-1 win at home to NAC Breda, and taking the overall loanee total to 79 for the campaign.

In scoring from the penalty spot for the 8th time in the league this season, captain Van Ginkel set a new PSV club record, and they are now potentially just two wins away from a first league title since 2015-16.

In Liga NOS, Nathan has struggled for playing time at Belenenses despite scoring against Benfica in February, but he made the most of a rare start on Sunday by finding the net in another big game, this time opening the scoring against Porto.

England

Premier League

Kenedy laid on a late but crucial assist for Ayoze Perez as Newcastle beat Huddersfield 1-0 on Saturday to ease their relegation fears. There was no such luck for Kurt Zouma and lowly Stoke, though, as the French defender missed the 3-0 defeat to Arsenal with a knee injury.

Tammy Abraham came off the bench in Swansea’s defeat at Manchester United to positive effect, twice going close to scoring, but ultimately being left punching the floor in frustration at being denied by David de Gea. Ruben Loftus-Cheek, meanwhile, played seventeen minutes at the end of Crystal Palace’s defeat at home to Liverpool as he bids to make a late charge for Gareth Southgate’s England World Cup squad.

Championship

Jamal Blackman took the headlines in the Championship, but for all the wrong reasons, as he was sent off during Sheffield United’s 1-1 draw at Brentford. His spat with Ryan Woods after a Brentford equaliser was ultimately something over nothing, but the pair were both given their marching orders, and Blackman duly missed the Blades’ Easter Monday date at home to Cardiff City through suspension.

Lucas Piazon played a full ninety minutes for Fulham in a 2-0 win at Norwich that saw them maintain a promotion charge that has lifted them to third in the table; Tomas Kalas was an unused substitute after spending the international break away in China with the Czech Republic (for whom he scored for the first time), but will be in line for a start at home to Leeds on Tuesday evening.

Kasey Palmer came off the bench twice for Derby against Sunderland and Preston in live televised fixtures, and produced enough in each cameo to leave Rams supporters unsure as to what he has to do to earn a starting berth.

Jeremie Boga was an unused substitute for Birmingham at home to Ipswich; the Blues are in action on Tuesday at Bolton, with the Ivorian international keen to earn his way back into Garry Monk’s starting eleven.

Ola Aina played all of Hull’s goalless draw with Aston Villa, whilst Michael Hector played 25 minutes, and Fikayo Tomori was an unused substitute. Lewis Baker was an unused substitute for Middlesbrough against Wolves and Burton, and Jake Clarke-Salter missed Sunderland’s matches through suspension.

League One

Jay Dasilva made his return from a month-long injury layoff for Charlton and helped them to a 3-1 win over Rotherham on Monday to keep them in with a chance of reaching the playoffs.

Jordan Houghton’s Doncaster Rovers have diminishing hopes of joining them, needing to win a pair of games in hand if they are to do, following Monday’s postponement at home to Wimbledon. Houghton did play from start to finish in Friday’s win at Blackpool though.

Todd Kane pulled double duty as Oxford took on a pair of promotion contenders in Scunthorpe and Shrewsbury, but Iké Ugbo was an unused substitute for Milton Keynes as they beat Gillingham but then lost 2-1 to Blackburn.

League Two

Brad Collins and Forest Green Rovers lost 2-1 at home to Colchester to leave them still looking over their shoulders at the foot of the table.

Non-League

Nathan Baxter and Woking lost to Macclesfield and Torquay to leave them in an unlikely relegation scrap; one they would have been a few more points better off in had Joey Jones not taken his eye off the ball in the first of those two matches…

Things are looking considerably better for Jared Thompson and Chippenham Town in the National League South though; a 4-0 win at home to Eastbourne Borough was followed by a 1-0 triumph at Oxford City to lift them to near-mathematical safety, whilst taking Thompson to nine clean sheets for the campaign, sharing the outright lead amongst Loan Army goalkeepers along with Blackman.

Netherlands

Vitesse suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat to Roda JC on Saturday, piling even more pressure on the club to dispense with the services of manager Henk Fraser before his scheduled departure at the end of the season.

Matt Miazga and Mason Mount played the full match but neither were able to impress, whilst Fankaty Dabo was an unused substitute.

Cristian Cuevas played ninety minutes as last-placed FC Twente drew 0-0 at VVV.

Germany

Michy Batshuayi might have scored for Belgium during the international friendlies, but he had a return to forget at Dortmund, ploughing a lone furrow up front in a 6-0 defeat at Bayern Munich.

Baba Rahman didn’t play for Schalke at home to Freiburg.

Belgium

Victorien Angban missed Waasland-Beveren’s 4-1 defeat at Kortrijk through injury.

Spain

Josimar Quintero played nineteen minutes as Betis Deportivo drew with Granada B.

Scotland

Charly Musonda was an unused substitute in Celtic’s 3-0 win over Ross County.

Turkey

Kenneth Omeruo played 81 minutes as Kasimpasa won 2-0 at Goztepe to move seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Russia

Mario Pašalić played the last minute of Spartak Moscow’s 2-1 win over Tosno.

Serbia

Danilo Pantic played 64 minutes of Partizan’s 2-1 win at Backa Backa Palanka.

Mexico

Joao Rodriguez’ absence continues as Tampico Madero beat Cafetaleros 1-0 on Sunday night.

Ireland

Mitchell Beeney was an unused sub as Sligo Rovers lost to Shamrock Rovers.
