LOAN WATCH: MCSHEFFREY, CANAVAN, VAN VEEN, BOYCE

14 April 2016

Taking a look at the Iron players currently on loan away from Glanford Park...

Just a short distance away from Glanford Park, winger Gary McSheffrey is at Doncaster Rovers; a side whose future in the division looks bleak with them currently eight points adrift of safety.

His debut for Rovers on Good Friday could hardly have started better, putting the side 1-0 up against Colchester United before the opposition responded rampantly with four second half goals.

McSheffrey has made four starts for Doncaster so far in his loan spell as he joined up with former loanee Tommy Rowe, but the Yorkshire outfit's torrid run without a win since January has since continued with 13 defeats and four draws in the last 17 games.

The closest they came to registering three points came at Spotland at the start of April, but they were thwarted by another Iron loanee deep into stoppage time.

2-1 up and looking to give them a lifeline, the hosts threw the defenders up - including Niall Canavan - and he was the player to fire home the equaliser, volleying into the bottom right-hand corner after a cross was only partially cleared.

The 25-year-old has made ten appearances for Dale since making a loan move in mid-February.

Moving across the water to Holland, Dutch striker Kevin van Veen netted his first goal on his eighth attempt as SC Cambuur registered a point against De Graafschap. He fired in a 61st minute free kick into the bottom left-hand corner to put his side 2-1 up.

Three starts and six substitute appearances have been made by the forward since his move to the Dutch Eredivisie. Their latest result was a tight affair in a 1-0 reverse against Dutch giants Ajax.

After a loan move to Hartlepool United at the start of the season, Andrew Boyce joined Notts County in mid-March, making three appearances in three successive defeats for the struggling Sky Bet League Two side.
