Here’s a look back at how our loanees got on across the weekend.
Jack Hamilton – Arbroath
A fantastic afternoon for Jack as he fired home a Scottish Cup hat-trick to send Arbroath through to the fifth round of the Scottish Cup to take on Hibernian for a place in the quarter-finals.
Goals in the 28th, 68th and 90th minute sealed the win for the Red Lichties and make it 4 goals in 4 appearances since returning for Jack.
Next up – Partick Thistle (H)
Gavin Reilly – Greenock Morton
It was an agonising Scottish Cup exit for Gavin as Morton lost to a last minute extra-time strike away to Motherwell. After drawing 0-0 in 90 minutes, Morton took the lead in extra-time through Robbie Muirhead. Motherwell equalised from the spot with just 9 minutes remaining and then, with the last kick off the game, Liam Donnelly struck to seal the win for Motherwell.
Next up – Raith Rovers (H)
Josh Mullin – Hamilton
There was no game for Josh or Hamilton this weekend due to their scheduled opponents playing in the Scottish Cup.
Next up – Ayr United (H)
Matej Poplatnik – Raith Rovers
Matej was also on the scoresheet this weekend as Raith Rovers beat Banks O’Dee 3-0 in the Scottish Cup. Former Lion Sam Stanton gave Raith the lead on 67 minutes before Matej and Aidan Connolly both struck in injury-time to seal a 3-0 win and set up a clash with Celtic in the next round.
Next up – Greenock Morton (A)
Carlo Pignatiello – Dumbarton
A brave effort from Carlo and Dumbarton on Saturday as they were pipped by the odd goal by Dundee. The Sons were reduced to 10-men just before the break when Ross MacLean as sent-off before a penalty from Leigh Griffiths on the hour mark sent Dundee through.
Next up – Cove Rangers (H)
Jaze Kabia – Falkirk
A dream debut for Jaze as he scored a double for the Bairns away to East Fife in a 2-0 league win. With the game still at 0-0 at the break, Jaze was introduced and made no mistake, scoring on 52 minutes and 90 minutes to seal all three points for Falkirk as they moved to within a point of the top 4.
Next up – Montrose (A)
Harrison Clark – Kelty Hearts
Harrison was cup-tied at the weekend having played for Arbroath in round 3 but watched on as Kelty Hearts produced the shock of the round, beating cup holders St Johnstone 1-0 to set-up a fifth round clash with St Mirren.
Next up – Elgin City (A)
Brian Schwake – Edinburgh City
A great experience for Brian and Edinburgh who took on Aberdeen at Pittodrie in the Scottish Cup, bowing out 3-0. Goals from Hedges, Ramirez and Ferguson sealed passage for the Dons but a great experience for the League Two side taking on top flight opposition.
Next up – Forfar Athletic (A)
