Loan Watch: Vokes on bench when Leeds extended lead

There has been some action from Wolves players out on-loan and as usual Paddytheflea will report about it in short.

Jason Shackell played all match when Doncaster lost to Coventry with a goal that came on a soft decision in the 85th minute of the game. Shackell will probably be sold, if Donny can afford him they will get him, in the January window.

Keeper Carl Ikeme did not play when Blades lost by three goals to one away against Leicester City. His loan expires on the second of January, so he may not play any more for the club if the loan doesn’t get extended.

Sam Vokes was firmly glued to the bench when Leeds beat Hartlepool with 3-1. Beckford scored a brace and the third was by Becchio. Leeds extended their lead of League One to six points and seem to have enough firepower without the Wolves striker. But Grayson is a modern manager that believes in rotating his strikers, so Sam may still be part of his plans. But he will probably be back at Molineux soon.

As I wrote a couple of days ago our defenders Scott Malone and Danny Batth would meet with their out on-loan teams on Boxing Day. They did, and as predicted Scott Malone did get his loan in Southend extended and played the game. Danny did not play for the U’s though, but was on the bench. Colchester did win the match by two goals to one and Malone had a couple of shots on goal from set pieces as usual. I saw that he got a seven in rating from some paper and that was second best of the Southend players, so the lad seem to be doing well out there. Batth did to before Reid came out from injury and took his place. He needs to play. Can he move to another club?

The Notts County match against Grimsby was postponed due to a frozen pitch so Daniel Jones did not play. Jones will probably be sold to Notts in the upcoming window.

Mark Little is out on-loan to Chesterfield in League Two. He played the match against Lincoln away that Chesterfield lost with two goals to one. It is possible that Little will be sold in the January window.

  1. Vokes is 5th choice now at Leeds, he’ll be back with you guys next week I would think. He’s been a massive let down IMO

  2. Regardless of what Leeds think I believe that Volkes has potential and Wolves should get him back and at least try him out with Doyle and or big Chris,
    He is very good in the air, and has a good fooball brain, he also is not as small as Doyle & Ebanks, and like Chris is more difficult to be brushed aside.

    Lets hope Wolves see sense, get him back at Wolves, and give him a chance.
