IT has been an action-packed week for several members of the Rangers on loan – with a midweek fixture list ensuring games continue to be dense and fast-paced for many.

Things did not improve for Colchester on Saturday, with a 3-0 loss in promotion in pursuit of Forest Green Rovers.
Young R, Oteh was a 75e replacing by the minute in the defeat in Gloucestershire, his team already lagging behind before his arrival.

Irishman Smyth didn’t take part in Stanley’s midweek loss to Crewe Alexandra at all, while the winger was a 67e minute-by-minute substitute in the 1-1 draw against Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

While Deshane Dalling was an unused replacement for Wealdstone during the week, however made a 69e minute of finish in the Stones’ 4-1 defeat at Wrexham.
After goalkeeper Marcin Brozozowski moved to Torquay United ahead of Saturday’s kick-off, the goalkeeper went straight into the Gull’s first eleven.
However, the 22-year-old couldn’t avoid a 1-0 defeat to Woking in the FA Trophy quarter-finals.
Liam Kelly continued to appear for Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership.
A 2-0 win for Graham Alexander’s side over Hibernian on Saturday gave Kelly some fine saves, securing the return of three points to Fir Park.
