Loan Watch: Thompson Man-of-the-Match on Pompey debut, King keeps another clean sheet

The latest on our players out on loan

20 August 2018

Throughout 2018/19, we keep up with the news of our players out on loan deals. Here we have the latest on our five boys currently with their respective temporary clubs...

Ben Thompson – Portsmouth

Ben Thompson made his Portsmouth debut on Saturday afternoon after signing for the Sky Bet League One club on a season-long loan last week. The midfielder immediately endeared himself to the Pompey fans and manager Kenny Jackett with a Man-of-the-Match display, starring for the whole match as Jackett's men ran out 4-1 winners over Oxford United. Fans, players and coaches alike are eager to see the progress of Ben as the campaign gathers pace.

Sid Nelson – Swindon Town

Sid Nelson made his competitive Swindon Town debut in last Tuesday's Carabao Cup First Round tie against Forest Green Rovers. Sid played the whole match, but was unfortunately unable to prevent Forest Green from taking a 1-0 win through to the next round. The defender was then in the squad for the Wiltshire side's 3-2 League Two victory over Tranmere Rovers, but was an unused substitute.

Tom King – AFC Wimbledon

Tom King played two more full games as his bright start to his spell at AFC Wimbledon continues. The goalkeeper was part of the side to beat Portsmouth 2-1 at Fratton Park in the Carabao Cup First Round, before returning to League One action and keeping a clean sheet as Neal Ardley's men forced Barnsley to a goalless draw at Oakwell.

James Brown – Livingston

James Brown was an unused substitute for Livingston at the weekend as they narrowly went down 1-0 in a home clash against Motherwell. The defeat leaves Livi ninth in the Scottish Premiership, albeit having faced two of the division's toughest opponents.

Harry Donovan – Dagenham & Redbridge

Harry Donovan started for Dagenham in their 2-1 National League defeat to Aldershot Town, playing 63 minutes at The Electrical Services Stadium, before being rested as The Daggers again went down 2-1 in a second away trip against FC Halifax Town. The team currently sit 23rd with just one point, but face two big games in quick succession over the Bank Holiday weekend, with Harry's side looking to move clear of the drop zone.

Be sure to keep up with Loan Watch throughout the season as we keep track of the progress of all our lads during their loan periods.
