Jason Brown (Cardiff City) appears to be third choice at the moment, with Stephen Bywater being the preferred number one and Heaton as his back-up. As I understand it, he could be back at his old club Gillingham next season.

El Hadji Diouf (Glasgow Rangers) is playing on a regular basis, but has been on the bench for the last couple of games. I can’t see him staying at Ewood next season without a change of manager.

Aaron Doran (Inverness CT) has been playing on a regular basis in the side and has scored once in 8 appearances.

Amine Linganzi (PNE) was injured after just one game and has not featured since.

Frank Fielding (Derby County) is interesting in that he helped Derby to 6th place during his first loan spell and after returning to Rovers they dropped to 16th position. On the bench on Saturday, he is one for the future and a decent keeper. We should keep him if we can, but he is good enough for a first team spot at least at Championship level.

Gavin Gunning (Motherwell) has made 12 appearances since joining on loan in January and has had decent ratings in the SPL and it looks as though he could be one for the future.

Zak Aley (Morecambe) has made one start and two substitute appearances. He has not made any headlines, but he could be a late developer. I have seen this lad firsthand and he has a little bit about him which could take him through to first team in a couple of years.

Jason Lowe (Oldham) has made five starts to date scoring two goals, the last one on Saturday, and appears to be making a good impression on manager Paul Dickov.

After 10 goals for Motherwell on loan, Nick Blackman followed manager Craig Brown to Aberdeen. Things have not worked out for him at the Dons and he was only on the bench on Saturday, having scored just once in 10 games. Interestingly Myles Anderson didn’t even make the bench for Aberdeen last Saturday!!
