Loanee Update, and Townsend Scores

Andros Townsend scored his league goal today for Yeovil Town. John Obika had an assist as well, and Danny Hutchins played the full 90, but Yeovil went down 3-2.

Yeovil have to be very happy with our lads, they've come on, played solid minutes and factor in the match outcome, Obika has scored and had assists, and Townsend got his first goal today. This bodes well for the future at the club, I would expect to see Townsend and Hutchins out on loan again next year, but Obika might get a chance with the first team.

Danny Rose started for Watford, and was substituted near the 60 minute mark. It seems he played in the center of the park, and was substituted more because Birmingham were ruling the center of the midfield than anything else, Watford lost 1-0.

Adel Taarabt came on as a sub in the 63rd minute for QPR, but couldn't help the club beat Wolves, who won 1-0 and were promoted to the Premier League. Sad to see Taarabt not starting, he has loads of ability and that's why we sent him out on loan.

Chris Gunter has settled at Nottingham Forest and played another 90 minutes today. Seems like getting regular football is very good for the young Welshman, this should help his confidence ahead of next season. Nottingham won the match 1-0 with a goal just after half-time.

And finally, Doran Dervite played the full match for Southend United, but the club still lost to Leceister 2-0, who were promoted. Dervite couldn't be faulted for either goal, the first was a penalty and the second a rebound off of a free kick. I still think he's got another year until he's ready to compete for a first-team spot.

Not a bad day for our lads out on loan. It's good to see them getting some time out on the pitch, it's good experience and can only help the club in the long-term.
