The Loan Report | 02/02/19

Three goals in four matches read our loan report from Saturday’s SPFL fixtures.

With three players heading out on loan in the final hours of Deadline Day there was going to be plenty of Dons representation throughout the SPFL this past weekend and it proved to be a successful week for those who played.

Bruce Anderson

The 19 year old was loaned out to Championship side Dunfermline on the final day of the transfer window so he could continue to develop within the senior game. Bruce has linked up with former Don Stevie Crawford at East End Park and led the line against Ross County. The striker made the perfect start by opening the scoring just before half time after finally getting the better of Scott Fox, who had denied him on a couple of occasions. Unfortunately for The Pars they were unable to hold onto their lead and went down 2-1 to the promotion chasers, however Bruce did collect the sponsors man of the match.

Mark Reynolds

Mark hadn’t played a 90 minutes of football since pre-season and came through Dundee United’s match with Greenock Morton unscathed following his loan move to Tannadice. Robbie Neilson named Reynolds as skipper and he was at the heart of the defence as United ran out 2-1 winners. Former Dons Cammy Smith, Peter Pawlett and Fraser Fyvie were all in the squad with Pawlett scoring the crucial second on his debut.

Scott Wright

The third of the deadline day loan departures, Scott also moved to Tayside by joining Dundee until the end of the campaign and like Bruce he started the spell with a goal. Dundee travelled to relegation rivals Hamilton Accies and Wright broke the deadlock after an hour with a well taken goal from 15 yards. Dundee looked to have done enough to claim the points, but were dealt a sucker punch as the clock struck 90 when Darion McKinnon fired home in stoppage time and both sides had to share the spoils.

Ryan Harrington

The right back has been on loan at League One side Montrose since August and played his part in an excellent 5-2 win against Brechin at Links Park on Saturday. Ryan popped up in the box with a fine finish to make it 4-2 with 20 to play. It was a first senior goal for the Welshman.

Fellow Aberdeen teammate Chris Antoniazzi was an unused substitute for Montrose as The Gable Endies moved to fifth in the table.

Last week’s Scottish Cup opponents, Stenhousemuir were due to face Stranraer, but the match was called off due to a frozen pitch meaning Seb Ross and his team will travel to Stair Park on Tuesday evening.

Defenfer Sam Roscoe has been impressive for Alloa Athletic in the Championship this season, but couldn’t add to his 19 league appearances due to injury. Danny Rogers, who is currently on loan at St Mirren remains side-lined with injury.
