Reading FC currently have five players out on loan at various levels of the football pyramid.

All five played this weekend, take a look and see how they got on below.


George Puscas- Pisa- Serie B

The most high-profile of the Royals’ loaned out players, the Romanian scored for a second time in three matches on Sunday as Pisa were pegged back to only draw against mid-table Perugia.

Puscas scored just before the half hour mark, but a 67th minute equaliser ensured that the points were shared in Italy’s second division.

The draw saw Pisa drop down to fifth in the Serie B, however it is incredibly tight with just three points separating second to fifth.

His five in Italy are already more than double the two that he scored this season for Reading, where he scored 20 in 91 appearances.

Next up for the Romania international is bottom half side Como, as Pisa continue to fight for promotion to Serie A for the first time since the phoenix club were reformed in 2009.


Marc McNulty- Dundee United- Scottish Premiership

McNulty played 90 minutes in the Dundee derby as his United side threw away a two-goal lead to draw with Dundee.

Midfielder Nicky Clark and former Blackburn Rovers defender Charlie Mulgrew gave the hosts a 2-0 lead, but goals from Danny Mullin and former Royal Charlie Adam pegged it back as the points were shared.

Bottom-side Dundee, managed by former Reading boss Mark McGhee, are five points adrift at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership table while the Tangerines secured a first top six finish since 2015 with the point at Tannadice.

McNulty has scored two goals since joining Dundee United, the latest back in March, but has slammed his parent club, stating that Reading “is not a nice place to be” and that he will “be delighted” when his contract is up at the end of the summer after a less than successful move to Berkshire from Coventry City in 2018.


Coniah Boyce-Clarke- Welling United- National League South

Highly rated goalkeeper Boyce-Clarke played the full 90 minutes in goal for fifth tier bottom side Welling United.

Joining in March after a spell with St Albans previously, the 19-year-old Academy graduate has played three times, winning one and keeping one clean sheet.

On Saturday, the Wings lost 4-2 to play-off chasing Ebbsfleet United.

The London side are now five points adrift of safety in National League South after winning just one of their last five matches, but have just one bottom half side left to face in their final six matches.

Jeriel Dorsett- Rochdale- League Two

In slightly more positive news, 19-year-old centre-back Dorsett picked up the Rochdale Player of the Month Award for March.

The Dale one just one game in March, drawing two of their eight matches, to slip down toward the relegation zone of the Football League’s basement division.

However, April has been more promising, with four points from six available lifting the side to mid-table safety with five games remaining.

Dorsett has played in the last 27 consecutive league matches and has come in for some rave reviews from club supporters, especially with helping the side to three consecutive clean sheets for the first time this campaign.

The defender played the whole 90 minutes on Saturday as Rochdale scored just after half-time to beat Walsall 1-0 at the Crown Oil Arena.

Harvey Collins- Walton Casuals- Southern League Premier Division South

Reading Under-23s goalkeeper Collins played the full 90 minutes as mid-table Walton Casuals lost 2-0 to play-off chasing Truro City.

The 19-year-old only joined the side on a one-month youth loan, with most of his appearances coming for the Royals youth side this season.
