Loan Report: Rain and Injury

Only two of Blues loanees were in action this week as injury and the rain affected the amount of game-time available.

Adam Rooney played the first half of Swindon Town’s shock 2-0 home defeat to non-league Macclesfield Town in the FA Cup 1st Round. Judging by the match report in the Swindon Advertiser it was a shocker from the home side, with Rooney being mentioned for missing one chance in the 27th minute. Maybe Di Canio had a point when he said he wanted to fine them for the performance? At any rate, Rooney was dropped for the midweek game against Sheffield United and remained on the bench for the full 90 minutes as the Robins grounded out a goalless draw.

Jake Jervis wasn’t able to play in the FA Cup at the weekend as Tranmere Rovers’ game against Braintree was called off with the Essex club’s pitch well and truly waterlogged. With Jervis returning from an ankle knock this gave the youngster the chance to recuperate some more and he started against Hartlepool in their 2-0 win last night, playing 74 minutes in a 1-0 win. Jervis had a chance to score early on after a one-on-one with the Pools keeper but put his effort wide at a ground where he horrifically missed an open goal for Carlisle United earlier this season.

Fraser Kerr missed both of Motherwell’s games this week with a calf injury, as the Steelmen continue a period of inconsistency which sees them anchored into the middle of the table.

Graham Hutchison has returned to Blues having got an ankle knock whilst on loan to Lincoln City and whilst it’s not considered serious it was felt he would be better off back in the midlands.

    Nothing to do with this article but I confess to reminiscing on the feats of last year as I watch Bruges v Newcastle on ESPN at present. At the time of writing Bruges drawing two each at half time after leading two ni after 43 minutes. Seeing the Newcastle fans celebrating brings the memories of it all back and with Braga v Man U last night and Spurs v Maribor later it really does bring the good time memories of last years europa cup campaign flooding back.

    I haven’t got too much interest in how Fraser Kerr is getting on at Motherwell if honest but I hope his calf heals soon!
