Loan watch: Quiet day for Fraser, Andrews misses match, Sordell rained out

Steve Bardens

While all eyes at home are on Dougie Freedman's struggling Bolton Wanderers, there are three Trotters currently plying their trade away from the Reebok. In past weeks, Gary Fraser, Marvin Sordell, and Keith Andrews have had mostly successful outings with their respective teams but this time around, it was a rough day out for all three players with only one of them actually seeing time on the pitch.

Gary Fraser's Partick Thistle were flying relatively high, sitting in the top half of the short Scottish Premiership. They were coming off a good win at Ross County and a draw at home against Heart of Midlothian before traveling to Motherwell at the weekend. The match would end 1-0 to the home side with Gary Fraser going only 52 minutes in the affair. Motherwell's goal came in the 20th minute and the Jags struggled to get back into the match with manager Alan Archibald forced to make an attacking change in hopes of getting back into the match. He took Fraser out in place of striker Kallum Higginbotham but it was ultimately to no avail.

Keith Andrews was ruled out of Brighton's match against Burnley and would miss the 2-0 home win altogether. Andrews' injury was undisclosed but it does not look like his absence will be a lengthy one.

Marvin Sordell was once again on the bench for Charlton Athletic, who travelled to Doncaster Rovers. Sordell has not yet found the back of the net for the Addicks and was replaced in the starting lineup by Simon Church last week. Church continued his great run of form, scoring his fourth in four appearances in all competitions this season but Charlton found themselves 3-1 down at the half. That is when the referee called the match off due a waterlogged pitch. The Rovers players tried to help the situation with push brooms in hand but it ultimately did not help.
