Loan Round-up: Luka and Joel get minutes in final league fixtures on loan

The latest details on our loan players

30 May 2022

It was an eventful final day of the season for a couple of our loan players as campaigns continue to draw to a close ahead of the summer.

In Denmark, Luka Racic played his final 90 minutes whilst on loan with HB Køge in Denmark. The side have been on a positive run of form of late and their final game was certainly entertaining as they drew 4-4 at home with Hobro. It seemed like a relatively routine win for Luka's side as they came from behind after an early Hobro goal. They went on to lead 4-1 on 63 minutes but the away side hit back with two goals in four minutes to make it 4-3. It was former Bee, Justin Shaibu, who grabbed the equaliser for Hobro on 89 minutes as HB Køge rounded off their campaign. After their league split midway through into the Play-Off part of the season, HB Køge were placed into the lower division where teams battled against relegation but they managed to top that group having claimed 42 points from their 32 matches played.

There was also drama in the second tier in Spain and Joel Valencia's AD Alcorcón, despite already being relegated, were heavily involved with the action concerned at the top of the division as their opponents Eibar pushed for promotion. Eibar were heading for the top tier of Spain until a 91st minute goal from Giovanni Zarfino gave Alcorcón a 1-0 win which meant that their opponents slipped into the Play-Off places as Almeria and Real Valladolid secured promotion automatically as Eibar now head into the Play-Offs. Joel featured for the final 26 minutes in the match.

Hans Mpongo also got some game time out in Iceland as he featured for the final four minutes as ÍBV were beaten away from home on Sunday by Stjarnan. The only goal of the game came on the hour through Óli Valur Ómarsson. ÍBV are next in action on 15 June against Víkingur Reykjavík.
