Loan report: Antonio shines for Wednesday

A round-up of all the Reading players currently out on loan and how they are getting on....


Winger Michail Antonio has made a stunning start to his career at League One side Sheffield Wednesday. The 22-year old has scored three goals in four games for the Owls, scoring a brace against Bournemouth last week, including a fantastic individual effort.

Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy has won back his spot at Chanpionship rivals Ipswich Town and has been a crucial asset in their recent revival of late. The England U21 international did his parent club a favour as he made some fantastic saves in their 1-1 draw with league leaders Southampton.

Young midfielder Lawson D'Ath has extended his spell with Yeovil Town by another month, after making a good impression at Huish Park. He scored his first goal for the Glovers last month during his four appearances, his loan will now end at the start of April.

Young striker Gozie Ugwu is also proving to be a big hit at Conference Premier side Ebbsfleet United. The academy product has scored three goals in five games and is expected to sign until the end of the season in the next few weeks.

Academy defender Angus McDonald has been learning his trade with League Two outfit Torquay United. McDonald has made one appearance for the Gulls in their 1-0 victory at Crawley and the academy captain has received praise from Torquay boss Martin Ling.
