League round-up: Montano off mark

Cristian Montano and Olly Lee were both in npower Football League action on Saturday although neither could help their sides avoid defeat.

Montano had the better afternoon, scoring a consolation for Notts County in their 2-1 defeat at home by Charlton Athletic in League One. The attacker came on at half-time for his league bow and promptly converted from close range to give Martin Allen's side hope of a comeback against a Charlton side led by Chris Powell and former Hammers reserve-team coach Alex Dyer.

In League Two, Lee played the whole 90 minutes for Dagenham & Redbridge but could not help them to a second win in as many games with the 2-0 loss to visiting AFC Wimbledon. Lee had one of his side's best efforts to score but was denied by a defensive block.

Jordan Spence, the club's third homegrown Hammer out on loan, will hope to line up for Bristol City away to Cardiff City on Sunday afternoon. Spence is on a season-long stay at Ashton Gate, while Montano and Lee will both return to West Ham next month after their 28-day loans.
