LOAN WATCH: Mixed fortunes on final day of Football League

By SFC Media time Mon 04 May Club

On the final weekend of the Football League season there were mixed emotions for Southampton's players out on loan.

Lloyd Isgrove was a 77th minute substitute for Sheffield Wednesday, as they drew 1-1 with Watford in the Championship.

A win for the Hornets would have won them the title, but Matej Vydra’s strike was cancelled out by Atdhe Nuhiu in the 90th minute for the Owls.

Isgrove almost won the game for the visitors, but as he raced clear towards an open goal the referee blew for full time.

The draw for Watford meant Artur Boruc and Bournemouth were crowned champions.

Boruc played the full 90 minutes, and kept a clean sheet, as the Cherries beat Chartlon Athletic away from home.

Matt Ritchie scored twice and Harry Artur grabbed the other as Eddie Howe’s men sealed the win they needed to finish top of the pile.

At the foot of the Championship, Jos Hooiveld was not involved for Millwall in their final game of the season as they ended with a 4-2 defeat to Wolves.

The Lions’ relegation had been confirmed in midweek, and goals from Aiden O’Brien and Jamie Philpot were not enough for Neil Harris’s side as they finished 22nd in the table.

In the Premier League, Gaston Ramírez was an 83rd minute substitute for Hull City in midweek as they picked up a vital three points against Liverpool thanks to Michael Dawson’s goal.

The Tigers are back in action this evening against Arsenal as they look to move further away from the bottom three.

In League 1, Jack Stephens and Jordan Turnbull played 45 minutes each of Swindon Town’s final game of the regular season.

The Robins drew 2-2 with Leyton Orient on Sunday, battling back from 2-0 down with a man disadvantage to earn a draw thanks to goals from Anton Rodgers and Andy Williams.

Last Tuesday, the duo both played the full 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw with Colchester United. Ben Gladwin got the goal for the Robins.

Dani Osvaldo played the full game as Boca Juniors beat rivals River Plate to maintain their unbeaten start to the league on Sunday night.

Goals from Cristian Pavon and Pablo Perez moved Boca three points clear of their rivals with 11 games of the campaign gone.
