Monday test for Bondz

Bondz 'Gala faces his biggest test yet at loan club Plymouth Argyle when the Pilgrims welcome newly-promoted Newcastle United on Monday night.

The 20-year-old central defender has done well in his six appearances since his move to Home Park but Plymouth are still fighting to avoid relegation from the Championship. With three matches to play, the Green Army are six points from safety. Elsewhere in the division, Freddie Sears did not feature as Coventry City drew 1-1 with Preston North End to all but ensure survival.

Also on Saturday, Frank Nouble played 20 minutes off the bench as League One promotion hopefuls Swindon Town drew 1-1 at home against Walsall. Matt Fry, the fourth Academy graduate out on loan, has yet to feature for Charlton Athletic, who are also looking likely for a play-off spot despite losing 1-0 at home to Norwich City.
