Victory for AngusOur young centre back Angus MacDonald helped Torquay to a vital win in League Two after being handed responsibility in a real six-pointer at the foot of the table.
With experienced defender Aaron Downes back from suspension, loanee Angus kept his place in the heart of defence after doing well in previous games against the likes of James Beattie and Freddy Eastwood.
And he rewarded boss Alan Knill by helping his team to a 2-1 home victory that takes them five points clear of the bottom two.
The 20-year-old England youth international has been on loan at Plainmoor since November, and has played 7(+4) times. He was also on loan at AFC Wimbledon earlier in the campaign and now has 12(+8) career games under his belt.
Another of our young defenders played on loan today, Michael Hector named man of the match for Cheltenham in a 0-0 draw away to one of his former loan clubs Barnet.
The 20-year old was making his 12th appearance for Town, and saw off a Bees side containing ex-Royals John Oster, Graham Stack and sub Clovis Kamdjo.
Hector has benefitted from a number of loans over the last two years - racking up more than 75 appearances for Dundalk, Barney, Shrewsbury, Aldershot and the Robins. His team are well placed in the League Two play-offs and only one point off an automatic spot, although having played a game more.
All our other loanees in Leagues One and Two unfortunately had their games postponed, while Kaspars Gorkks, Jay Tabb and Joseph Mills had no games in the Championship because of internationals.
Brett Williams' Woking had their game called off but he has a knock at the moment, while Charlie Losasso's Whitehawk did get their game to go ahead and they saw off Carshalton 2-0. Charlie was on target for the table-toppers last week.
Last but by no means least, Karl Sheppard's Shamrock are in action on Sunday.
