Here’s a look back at how our loanees got on across the weekend.
Josh Mullin (Hamilton) vs Joel Nouble & Harrison Clark (Arbroath)
We had three loan players in action in the same game yesterday as Josh Mullin’s Hamilton Accies took on an Arbroath side featuring both Joel Nouble and Harrison Clark. An Andy Ryan penalty on 16 minutes looked to be the difference as the game neared an end but Thomas O’Brien popped up in the 91st minute to grab an equaliser for the Red Lichties and mean our three loanees would share the spoils. A point for Arbroath sees them move to within 3 of league leaders Kilmarnock with Hamilton edging another point clear of bottom side Dunfermline.
Next up for Hamilton – Raith Rovers (H).
Next up for Arbroath – Queen of the South (A).
Gavin Reilly – Greenock Morton
It was a huge win for Morton as the Greenock side picked up all three points in a 3-1 win away to bottom side Dunfermline Athletic. Morton were ahead through Gary Oliver before Matty Todd equalised before the break for the hosts. Gozie Ugwu fired Morton back ahead before a late Gary Oliver penalty sealed the win. Gavin came off the bench on the 84th minute with the score at 2-1 to Morton, helping the Cappielow side get over the line and move up to 8th place.
Next up – Kilmarnock (H).
Matej Poplatnik – Raith Rovers
Matej started yesterday amongst the subs for Raith Rovers, coming on in the 76th minute as the Kirkcaldy men were held to a 1-1 draw away to Queen of the South. Max Johnston put Queens ahead just after the break but Aidan Connolly levelled on 72 minutes with neither side being able to find a winner. Rovers remain in 4th place but close the gap on table-topping Kilmarnock to just three points.
Next up – Hamilton (A)
Carlo Pignatiello – Dumbarton
Carlo played the full 90 as Dumbarton picked up a point at home to Clyde. That point looked to be all three though with the Sons taking the lead through Eoghan Stokes on the 89th minute only to be pegged back by David Goodwillie almost immediately after. The point sees Dumbarton move above Peterhead and into 7th place, just 6 points behind the promotion play-off places.
Next up – Falkirk (H).
Brian Schwake – Edinburgh City
A bad night at the office for Brian and his Edinburgh City side as they went down 4-0 at home Albion Rovers on Friday night. Max Wright, James McGowan & Callum Wilson had Rovers 3-0 up at the break, with Corey O’Donnell rounding off the scoring on the hour mark. That defeat means the Citizens remain in 5th place, 5 points behind Annan in the promotion play-off spots.
Next up – Stranraer (H).
