Loan Watch: Thompson impresses as Pompey march on

The latest on Millwall's loanees...

3 September 2018

Throughout 2018/19 millwallfc.co.uk will keep up with the news of Lions players out on loan deals. Here we have the latest on the quintet currently with their respective temporary clubs...

Ben Thompson – Portsmouth

Ben Thompson played another 90 minutes in the middle of the park for Portsmouth on Saturday as Kenny Jackett's side eased past basement boys Plymouth Argyle by winning 3-0. Thompson is undefeated since joining the Fratton Park outfit, who currently sit in second place in the Sky Bet League One table behind Peterborough United on goal difference.

Next up for Pompey is a Checkatrade Trophy tie against Gillingham and a League affair with Shrewsbury Town, both at home.

Sid Nelson – Swindon Town

Defender Sid Nelson also completed the full game for The Robins last weekend as they gained a last-gasp point at home to MK Dons in Sky Bet League Two.

Joe Walsh gave Milton Keynes a fourth-minute lead, but Elijah Adebayo's 90th-minute equaliser ensured a share of the spoils.

The international break doesn't bring the football to a halt in the lower Leagues, with Town travelling to Morecambe next Saturday before hosting Newport County in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Tom King – AFC Wimbledon

There was little Tom King could do to prevent AFC Wimbledon slipping to a fourth straight defeat, meanwhile, as The Dons went down 3-0 at Burton Albion on Saturday afternoon.

Stephen Quinn, David Templeton and Liam Boyce all found the net as Wimbledon remained winless in the League since the opening day of the season.

Two local derbies may give Neal Ardley's side a chance to get their form back on track, as they next host Charlton Athletic in the Checkatrade Trophy before travelling to Gillingham in the League.

Harry Donovan – Dagenham & Redbridge

Harry Donovan appeared on the substitutes bench for Millwall during their 3-2 Carabao Cup Second Round win over Plymouth Argyle on Wednesday night but was absent from The Daggers' squad as they battled to a goalless draw with Salford at the weekend.

A local affair with Braintree Town awaits Dagenham in midweek before a long trip to Barrow in the Vanarama National League next weekend.

Fred Onyedinma - Wycombe Wanderers

After joining Wycombe on loan on Thursday afternoon, Fred Onyedinma stepped off the bench to play the last 20 minutes of The Chairboys' 1-1 draw with Luton Town in Sky Bet League One on Saturday afternoon.

The attacker is on loan at Adams Park until January 2019 and will look to gain more minutes in the next week as Wycombe face away matches at Northampton Town - in the Checkatrade Trophy - and Charlton Athletic.

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.
