Bondz 'Gala made his league debut on Saturday coming on as an early substitute for League One high-fliers MK Dons in their 3-0 away win at Walsall.
The Forest Gate-born centre-back joined Roberto Di Matteo's club on loan just over a week ago but was an unused replacement last weekend. It was a different story this time out, with the 19-year-old needed on 24 minutes to replace injured captain Dean Lewington. By that time, MK Dons were one-nil up and they went on to add a further two goals after the interval.
Meanwhile, Josh Payne has agreed a third month at Cheltenham Town as the midfielder, who only turns 18 on Tuesday, made his eighth appearance for the League One strugglers in a 1-0 defeat at Carlisle United. Finally, Nigel Quashie' month-loan at Birmingham City has been extended with the midfielder suspended for their 3-2 win against Swansea City after his red card in the previous fixture.
