Tottenham Hotspur loan watch: Cameron Carter-Vickers goes off injured, Jack Roles features in draw and Luke Amos held with QPR

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.

While Tottenham Hotspur managed to notch up a win against Red Star Belgrade, a trio of loan players struggled on loan at clubs across League Two and the Championship.

Cameron Carter-Vickers

Cameron Carter-Vickers played just 27 minutes of Stoke City’s 1-0 loss away to promotion-chasing Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday evening as he went off injured.

The match against Wednesday was the first time Carter-Vickers was hadn’t completed 90 minutes in his last seven appearances for the Potters.

Despite the loss on Tuesday, the youngster did play the full 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet on the weekend as Stoke beat Fulham 2-0 at home.

Jack Roles

Jack Roles played 68 minutes as Cambridge United registered a 0-0 draw at home to Grimsby Town in League Two. The game was Roles’ sixth start of the season as the U’s extended their unbeaten run to two games.

Despite going off as a substitute in the second half, Roles had the third-most shots of any Cambridge player (via WhoScored),

However, the Cyprus youth international did start and score in Cambridge’s 4-0 win over Exeter City last weekend with Roles scoring the second goal of the afternoon.

Luke Amos

Luke Amos came on as a second-half substitute in Queens Park Rangers’ 2-2 draw at home Reading in the Championship last night. This means the former England under-18 international has started none of QPR’s last nine games in the league with his last start coming back on matchday four.

QPR face a west London derby on the weekend as they take on Brentford on Monday evening looking to cement their place in the play-off places.

Cameron Carter-Vickers is gaining valuable experience away at the Bet365 Stadium as he looks to help the Potters steer clear of relegation. However, his progress could be stunted after his injury on Tuesday.

Roles is notching appearances for Cambridge as the club rise up the table in League Two, looking to potentially head for the playoff places. The 20-year-old has played a key role, scoring three goals in 10 appearances as he’s shown his quality.

After starting the first four games of the season, it seems Amos’ injury against Swansea City has got the better of him as he warms the bench at Loftus Road. He may be headed for more starts with a busy Christmas schedule around the corner and QPR fighting for promotion at this moment in time.
