Find out how our band of loanees got on away from the Vic’ this weekend

Only three Watford players out on loan got game time at the weekend, all featuring in 1-1 draws for their respective clubs.

Scunthorpe United pair Josh Walker and David Mirfin
both got 90 minutes for the struggling Iron at home to leaders, Charlton Athletic.

A sixth minute Bradley Wright-Phillips goal put the hosts behind before on-loan forward Jon ‘the beast’ Parkin bagged the leveller from the penalty spot.

Scunny sit 18th in League One, just three places above the drop zone.

Also in the third-tier, returning Colchester United forward Gavin Massey came off the bench for the U’s.

The Watford-born hitman got 22 minutes for John Ward’s side in a 1-1 draw with Simon Grayson’s Huddersfield United.

Massey and co. would have claimed all three, but for a 90th minute own goal from centre-back, Magnus Okuonghae.

Wealdstone attacker Connor Smith was in action as the Stones held Blue Square Premier outfit Newport County to a goalless draw in the second-leg of their F.A Trophy semi-final – a brave effort from the part-timers.

Gordon Bartlett’s side return to league action tonight, with a visit from Met Police, kick-off is a 7.45pm.

Chez Isaac, Adam Thompson, Rene Gilmartin and Jonathan Bond did not feature for their respective loan clubs at the weekend.
