In our Loan Watch feature series, the Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at how a selection of players from a particular club are faring whilst they are away from their parent side, and provide a brief update regarding their form.
This week we focus on three players out on loan from QPR, two of whom are operating in League One and another spending the season in Scotland.
The American defender wasn’t in action this weekend as Wycombe’s League One fixture against Ipswich, originally scheduled for last Saturday, was moved to November 26th, as noted by Wycombe’s official website.
However, the international break seems like a good time to assess how he has fared at Adams Park so far this term.
The 22-year-old has been in and out of the team, with five starts in 12 league matches, including three of Wycombe’s last four. He provided an assist in the 3-0 win at Rochdale recently and, in the 3-3 draw against Peterborough in their last game, he won five aerial duels and two tackles but had a poor passing accuracy rate of just 54.5%, as per WhoScored.
The Senegalese goalkeeper did have a League One outing at the weekend but it did not go well, with Doncaster losing 0-3 at Oxford.

Having been on the bench for the Yorkshire club’s first nine league matches, he has now played in each of their last four, but he followed up a clean sheet in the first of those by conceding six goals across the subsequent three games.
The right-sided player has struggled for gametime on loan at Partick Thistle, having played in just two Scottish Championship games this season, but he was in the team for their Challenge Cup match against Connah’s Quay at the weekend.
The 22-year-old played the full 90 minutes as the Glaswegian club beat their Welsh opponents 2-0 and was named as his team’s Man of the Match by the club’s official website, having been involved in the lead-up to Partick’s first goal.
It’s been something of a mixed bag for this on-loan QPR trio, with polarised results for their teams and varying degrees of action.
Kakay was the big winner with recognition of his performance as Partick Thistle won, which could hopefully see him featuring more regularly in the league for them.
Dieng is getting games but will be disappointed to have shipped three at Oxford despite making several saves, while Phillips is at least getting a more frequent chance in Wycombe’s line-up over the last month.
