Gough loan extended

Posted on: Mon 10 Oct 2011

Mark Ritson reports

Goalkeeper Conor Gough has extended his loan spell with Blue Square Bet South side Salisbury City until early January two days after being named man-of-the-match for the Whites against table-toppers Woking on Saturday.

The 19-year-old custodian has started every league match for City since joining in August, and further helped his side in their quest for a play-off position with a fine display between the sticks over the weekend.

Having seen his defence give away a sloppy pass in the opening stages of the match, the six-foot-three stopper pulled off a fantastic point-blank save before tipping over a dipping shot from the edge of the box shortly afterwards.


Gough made the best save of the match in the second period with a low save down to his right after Woking had hit the Whites on the counter-attack, before pulling off a flying save from a direct free-kick to ensure his side came away with a point after a goalless draw.

Salisbury host Poole Town in the FA Cup on Saturday (3pm), and with Gough allowed to feature in the competition, he'll be hoping to help his team progress to the next phase.

Defender Yado Mambo was in action for Ebbsfleet United on Saturday against high-fliers Gateshead, but he couldn't stop the northerners from grabbing the only goal of the game moments before the break.

Playing in a three-man defence, Mambo was unable to stop Jeff Henderson from heading past goalkeeper Preston Edwards from a corner, although the Fleet had the better chances in the first period.

Mambo will line up for the final match of his loan spell against Luton Town on Tuesday (7.45pm), as manager Liam Daish looks to lift the Kent side out of the relegation zone.

Midfielder Ben Davisson made his debut for Welling United on Saturday when he came on as second-half substitute after 74 minutes, but he couldn't help the Wings break down a stubborn Dover Athletic side managed by former Addicks loan striker Nicky Forster.

Jamie Day's side dropped points at Park View Road for the first time this season with a 0-0 draw, despite enjoying more of the play, while Charlton academy product Tamer Tuna also made his first appearance moments after Davisson.

Davisson will be hoping to feature in a South London derby against Dulwich Hamlet on Wednesday (7.45pm), before Welling host Dorchester Town on Saturday (3pm).

Goalkeeper Nick Pope and loan club Harrow Borough were not in action over the weekend (other than the goalkeeper's appearance at half-time on the Valley pitch), but travel to face Wingate & Finchley on Tuesday (7.45pm) before taking on Carshalton Athletic on Saturday (3pm).

Freddie Warren also didn't feature for loan club Kettering Town over the weekend as he is still shaking off an injury, but could come into contention against Forest Green on Saturday (3pm) or Newport County next Tuesday (7.45pm).
