Loan Watch: Sims continues American adventure

By SFC Media time Mon 09 Mar Loan Watch

Josh Sims came off the bench to help New York Red Bulls continue their unbeaten start to the MLS season. Read about this and more in this week’s Loan Watch, in association with Kuflink.

The 22-year-old midfielder, whose current loan deal runs at the Red Bull Arena until the end of the season, came on in the second half but couldn't stop Real Salt Lake from scoring a last minute equaliser after Cristian Sleiker Cásseres Yepes had earlier put New York ahead.

The result leaves the Red Bulls second in the Eastern Conference two points behind leaders Atlanta United.

In Europe, defender Maya Yoshida made his Serie A debut for Sampdoria and they beat Hellas Verona 2-1. The win puts them one point above the relegation zone with a game in hand.

There were also starts for Wesley Hoedt, Mario Lemina and Guido Carrillo for their respective clubs in Europe.

The latter played 90 minutes as Leganes beat Villareal 2-1 to close the gap to three points in their fight for survival in La Liga and there was also a win for Hoedt as Royal Antwerp beat Kortrijk 1-0.

Lemina played 82 minutes for Galatasaray in their 2-2 draw against Sivasspor which now leaves them three points away from the top of the Super Lig. 

Meanwhile in Holland, Callum Slattery came off the bench for De Graafschap as they beat Go Ahead Eagles 2-1 as The Superboeren continue to look for promotion back to the Eredivisie. 

In the Football League it was a good day for Gillingham defensive pair Alfie Jones and Thomas O'Connor as both played in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Jones played the full ninety minutes whilst O'Connor came on at 0-0 with 30 minutes to go.

Also, there were unused substitute appearances for midfielder Jake Hesketh and goalkeeper Jack Rose for Lincoln City and Walsall respectively.

And finally in Scotland, Celtic pair Fraser Forster and Mohamed Elyounoussi were both involved as the Glasgow side beat St Mirren 5-0 as they look to close in on the Scottish Premiership title.
