Gray eyes Loovens return … and more loans …

Charlton Athletic

Stuart Gray is hopeful that Glenn Loovens will be fit for Saturday’s FA Cup fifth round tie with Charlton.

Loovens, who has been out with a hamstring injury, has been training this week and Gray believes he could be back in the squad for the cup tie.

Gray is also hopeful of bringing in two new loan signings – a defender and a striker – in the near future while Stephen McPhail has left the club to join Shamrock Rovers after making 14 appearances during his short-term contract at S6.
