3 December 2018

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


Ben Thompson – Portsmouth

Ben Thompson starred yet again in another two victories for Portsmouth over the past seven days. Kenny Jackett’s side followed up a 2-0 Sky Bet League One victory over Walsall in midweek by scoring a last-gasp winner at Rochdale to advance to the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup. Ben played both full matches, maintaining his successful loan spell with two impressive performances.

Fred Onyedinma – Wycombe Wanderers

Fred Onyedinma was again on the winning side for Wycombe Wanderers as The Chairboys came from behind in dramatic fashion at Accrington in Tuesday’s League One clash. The 2-1 win puts Wycombe just six points outside the Play-Off places, with Fred becoming a mainstay in Gareth Ainsworth’s line-up.

Tom King – AFC Wimbledon

Tom King was amongst the substitutes for AFC Wimbledon in their two recent matches. The Dons were first edged out in the week by a solitary goal at Peterborough United in League One, before sealing their passage into the FA Cup Third Round with a 3-1 victory at FC Halifax Town on Saturday.

Sid Nelson – Swindon Town

Sid Nelson’s Swindon Town experienced mixed fortunes across their two games in the past week, with Sid playing the full 90 minutes as The Robins secured a 3-2 League Two win at home to Stevenage. Richie Wellens’ men then suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to Woking in the FA Cup on Sunday, with Sid an unused substitute.

Dan McNamara – Welling United

Dan McNamara started both of Welling United’s games in the past seven days, ending the week on a positive note. The Wings first faced Dulwich Hamlet in their Buildbase FA Trophy replay, going down 2-1 in South London. Welling then returned to Vanarama National League South action, and rose to the top of the table with a 3-1 victory over Hungerford Town in a pulsating title race.
