There are six Brentford players currently out on loan. Here is a look at how they have got on in the past few days.
AB Copenhagen 3-1 Viborg FF
Ellery was an unused substitute as Viborg crashed out of the Danish Cup on Wednesday evening. Icelandic international stopper Ingvar Jonsson started between the sticks in his place and things got off to a perfect start at Gladsaxe Stadium as Tobias Bech netted inside the first 60 seconds. However, Nichlas Rohde hit back for the hosts to send the tie to extra-time, where they prevailed thanks to goals from Marcus Horbye and Frederik Christensen.
Fremad Amager 1-0 FC Midtjylland
Emiliano was the second player to be have a club involved with the Danish Cup this week, as FC Midtjylland travelled to second-tier outfit Fremad Amager on Thursday evening with a place in the quarter-finals of the competition at stake. The 24-year-old wasn’t included in the matchday squad, however, as Midtjylland were eliminated by a solitary strike from Nigerian striker Samson Ideye after 66 minutes.

Bernard Ashley-Seal got the visitors’ off and running after 19 minutes, before skipper Hallam Hope levelled proceedings. In a frantic six-minute period Hong Kong’s Wai-Tsun Dai put Wanderers back ahead, but Ryan Loft’s strike on the stroke of half-time made it 2-2.

Celtic 5-0 Partick Thistle
It’s been a tumultuous start up in Scotland for Reece Cole, not least with Partick Thistle sitting bottom of the Scottish Championship. This week, ex-manager Ian McCall took the reins after Gary Caldwell’s sacking, while Wednesday night saw the Jags travel to Parkhead to take on Celtic in the Scottish League Cup quarter-final. Reece was named on the bench for the fixture, but though he replaced Shea Gordon after 74 minutes, the damage had already been done. Goals from Vakoun Issouf Bayo, Tomas Rogic and an Olivier Ntcham double put Neil Lennon’s side 4-0 up with little more than an hour gone, before Scott Sinclair’s tap-in rounded off the thumping 5-0 victory.

Goalkeeper David Gregory put through his own net to give Neal Ardley’s men the lead after 41 minutes, with Samuel Osborne doubling the away side’s lead with a long-range effort that sailed over the stricken Gregory’s head into the back of the net. Tyrone Marsh’s penalty reduced the deficit on 84 minutes, but the result leaves Boreham Wood 18th in the table after 13 games.
