Loan Watch: Halford to stay for season & Keogh assists to goal
Matty Hill was on the bench again when Barnsley lost to Swansea away with a single goal.
Andy Keogh was luckier – or was he? – as he played from start against Watford away. With both Bellamy and Bothroyd out it fell upon Keogh and Chopra to lead the Cardiff team upfront.
But high-flying Watford – who managed to win against league leaders QPR a few days earlier – had no problems of dismissing that threat, and plenty of threats themselves upfront. The night ended with a trashing and the Welsh had to take the bus home in silence with four goals in the back and only one upfront.
Wolves out on-loan striker Keogh was actually involved in the Cardiff City goal. He combined with Chris Burke down the left and the Scot crossed for Whittingham who ghosted into space to drill home a low shot. But that was all from Cardiff on the night.
It now seem to be cleared out that Greg Halford will stay at Portsmouth for the season.
Steve Cotterill told The News:
“I’ve spoken to Mick and we will be able to extend Greg’s loan until the end of the season. I’m really pleased with that and really thankful to Mick and Wolves. He’s done well. You don’t get many goal-scoring right-backs and he gives us great versatility“
I forgot to tell you in my latest loan watch that Nat Mendez-Laing club Peterborough was to play against Swindon away on the 28th.
Some minutes before Nat came on Swindon had levelled after a penalty given because of a foolish challenge from former Wolves player Mark Little. Swindon Town went close to take all three points in the dying minutes of the game so I guess that Posh and Natty should be pleased with a draw.
All other games with Wolves players out on-loan competing were postponed because of the weather, according to my notes.
