We’re back with our ‘Loan Watch’ series, which will run every fortnight to cover how Rovers’ out-on-loan contingent are performing.
There’s been plenty of action since we last caught up (12 January), so let’s dive straight into it!
Since making his scoring debut in our last catch up, Carter made his second appearance in a Burton shirt last weekend, playing the full ninety minutes in their narrow defeat against Ipswich Town last week.
The Brewers’ tie with Shrewsbury was called off this weekend due to a number of their players testing positive for Covid-19, but it is yet unclear if Hayden is one of the affected players.
After making his Morecambe debut in the cup defeat to Chelsea, Lyons has featured just once for the North-West based side.
He came off the bench in their 2-0 defeat to Leyton Orient last Saturday, playing 17 minutes as The Shrimps suffered a blow in their play-off chase.
However, Lyons has missed Morecambe’s last two matches, and potentially could be isolating or nursing an injury with no official reason confirmed.

The 22-year-old defender made ten appearances for the North-East based side, but due to Rovers’ defensive injuries and issues, Magloire could stay with the U23s and provide a back-up option for Rovers.
Since we last caught up, it’s been a disappointing time for Fleetwood Town and Charlie Mulgrew, with the Cod Army failing to pick up a victory since the New Year.
Mulgrew had linked up for all three of Fleetwood’s League One fixtures this year, playing the full ninety minutes in all three as well.
They fell to defeat at home to Portsmouth and away to MK Dons, before recording a goalless draw away to strugglers Wigan Athletic at the weekend.
The winger had to wait to make his debut for Shrewsbury, who had a number of positive Covid-19 tests in recent weeks, postponing their fixtures for the opening weeks of 2021.
His debut came in the Shrews’ FA Cup defeat to Southampton, before the 23-year-old made his league debut as Shrewsbury were narrowly defeated away to Sunderland.
Despite the defeat, Chapman impressed in the fixture, going on a mazy run before being well denied by the Sunderland ‘keeper.

The Spanish midfielder hadn’t featured for Intercity since the middle of October, and with Covid-19 causing issues around the footballing world, the move back to Rovers is the best for all parties.
It has been a couple of busy weeks for the Rovers U23s ‘keeper, with Hilton moving to Fleetwood Town on a seven-day emergency loan, making three appearances before returning to Rovers.
Tony Mowbray revealed that clubs have expressed interest in taking Hilton on loan to their club, and Scottish newspaper The Daily Record have revealed that Ross County are close to signing the 21 year old.
The tricky winger, who made his first-team appearance back in October in the defeat to Nottingham Forest, has returned from his loan spell from National League North side AFC Fylde.
He made just six appearances for the Coasters, and is now set to link back up with the U23s.
White is without an appearance for Bolton since the middle of December, and is expected to return to Ewood this window.
