Oliver Hotchkiss

Mansfield Town 0-0 Grays Athletic (Conference)

Been overlooking some players out on loan in recent weeks as I focused on Andrew Milne and Davide Somma. However, neither of them made their respective loan-teams this week so I thought I’d look around and see how our other lads are getting on.

Ollie made his third appearence for Mansfield (once as a sub), during which time he’s also managed to score his first goal. The team seem to rate him highly, describing the youngster as a ‘young Gary McAllister’ on their official site.

Ollie played all 90 minutes for the Conference side. Clearly not shy of the tackle, he’s said to have made several key challenges and been a strong presence throughout, although he did also pick up the honour of most fouls (3).

Tom Lees

Notts County 1-2 Accrington Stanley (League Two)

Tom Lees, on loan to midweek JPT opponents Accrington Stanley seems to be making a real impact. Although he’s had some injury problems whilst at the club, the full-back returned this week to get himself an assist as Stanley beat super-rich Notts County.

The Lanchashire Telegraph said;

Stanley were able to recall fit-again right back Tom Lees and he provided the pass on the hour mark for Symes to score after rounding Kasper Schmeichel. Ryan then volleyed a second goal in the 74th minute.

Lees played all 90 minutes for Accrington Stanley and Leeds fans may be able to see him in action on Tuesday, that’s assuming there’s no clause in his contract permitting him from playing us.

    Tom Lees will not be playing tomorrow, whilst there was no clause in the contract, I understand that the clubs have come to an agreement which would mean he will not be in the squad for the trip.

    It seems a shame for the lad, but at least he won’t score the winner against us!!
