Catch up with the fortunes of The Bees players currently out on loan
Manny Onariase and Cheltenham Town's run in the Checkatrade Trophy came to an end last night as they were beaten 1-0 by Bradford City at the LCI Rail Stadium. After a goalless first 45 minutes, Jordy Hiwula tapped home the only goal of the game midway through the second period. Manny nearly got The Robins back level shortly when his fine run and cross set up Billy Waters, his effort striking the bar, but it was The Bantams who progressed to the last eight and a tie with Oxford United.
In Marbella, Andy Gogia played the full 90 minute as Dynamo Dresden beat FC Zurich 3-1 in their penultimate friendly match of the German winter break. Stefan Kutschke netted twice in the opening 20 minutes against the current Swiss Division Two leaders with Andreas Lambertz adding a third before half-time. Andy was the only player to complete 90 minute for Dynamo as FC Zurich pulled one back late on through Džengis Čavušević. Dynamo's final warm-up match is this Friday, again in Marbella, against FC Luzern.
