Catch up with the latest from our players out on loan this weekend

There were three defeats from three for the Brentford loan players this weekend in England and Germany.

Dynamo Dresden’s faint promotions hopes are now all but over after a 1-0 defeat away at SpVgg Greuther Fürth on Friday night. Andy Gogia retained his starting spot for the visit to the Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer and came closest to opening the scoring in the second-half. Picking up the ball in his own half, Andy embarked on a mazy run which ended with him shooting just wide from inside the box. The only goal of the game followed 15 minutes later as Aias Aosman scored a spectacular own goal: kneeing the ball into his own net from 20 yards. Despite seeing their promotion dreams end, it’s been a remarkable first season back in the 2. Bundesliga for Dynamo who remain fifth with four games to play. Next up is a trip to VfL Bochum 1848 on Friday night.

Also in Germany, Jan Holldack was not involved as SV Wuppertaler slumped to a sixth straight defeat in all competitions. Rot-Weiß Oberhausen scored both goals in the opening 45 minutes: Tim Hermes’ free-kick beating everyone to find the far corner after 20 minutes before Robert Fleßers headed home a second six minutes later. Defeat leaves SVW tenth in the table before they entertain bottom of the table Sprockhövel next Friday.

In Sky Bet League Two, Cheltenham Town remain too close to the relegation zone for comfort after a 3-0 defeat at Blackpool on Saturday. Mark Cullen and Clark Robertson scored before the break and Neil Danns added a third in the second-half for the Play-Off chasing Tangerines. Manny Onariase played the 90 minutes for The Robins who are four points clear of the relegation zone with two games to play. Next up is a crucial game at the wrong end of the table as The Robins entertain 23rd placed Hartlepool United at The LCI Rail Stadium next Saturday.
