We’re back with our ‘Loan Watch’ series, which runs every week to cover how Rovers’ out-on-loan contingent are performing.
There’s been plenty of action since we last caught up, so let’s dive straight into it!
Tuesday night saw Harry Chapman feature as a substitute in Shrewsbury’s 2-1 home loss to relegation threatened, with the winger coming on at half-time.

He then started and played 86 minutes in the Shrews’ 1-0 away win at Blackpool, with the victory confirming their place in League One next season.
Hayden Carter kept up his record of playing the full ninety minutes of every match since signing for Burton, playing in both the Brewers’ 1-0 midweek loss to Lincoln and their 1-1 draw with Wigan on Saturday.
The results mean Burton have now secured their place in the division for next season after picking up forty points in the 21 matches since Carter arrived at the club.
As per usual, Harry Pickering captained Crewe Alexandra in their 2-0 away win at Fleetwood Town on Tuesday, playing the full match.
The left-back did the same for the Railwaymen’s 1-1 draw at home to struggling Rochdale, leaving Crewe 15th in the League One table and safe from danger.
Tuesday night saw Brad Lyons come on with three minutes left to play as Morecambe ran out as 3-0 victors away to Grimsby Town.
Lyons then started the Shrimps’ 1-0 loss to fellow promotion chasers Bolton Wanderers, but he was withdrawn after 24 minutes due to a red card for Morecambe.
The results leave Derek Adams’ side fourth in the table, with their play-off place all but confirmed.
Tyler Magloire played the full ninety minutes for Motherwell as they won 1-0 away at Hamilton on Wednesday evening, leaving them ninth in the ‘Relegation Group’ of the Scottish Premiership, safe from relegation.
He then started in the Well’s Scottish Cup defeat to Hibernian, before being withdrawn after 68 minutes as they exited the competition at the quarter-final stage.
There was no place in the Rochdale squad for Jack Vale in either of their matches this week, with the forward missing the Dale’s midweek win over Blackpool (1-0) and their draw with Crewe on Saturday (1-1).
The results leave Rochdale five points off safety in League One, although they do have a game in hand to play.
There have been no fixtures for Tom White’s Hartlepool side this week, leaving them second in the National League table.
There was no place in the matchday squad for Joe Grayson in either of Oxford’s fixtures this week, missing their midweek loss to AFC Wimbledon (2-1) and their win over Plymouth Argyle on Saturday (3-1).
The results leave the U’s sat fifth in League One, with a play-off place up for grabs heading into the final weeks.
Due to an Achilles injury, Charlie Mulgrew appears to have played his last match for Fleetwood Town.
The injury meant the defender missed out on the Cod Army’s 2-0 loss at home to Crewe and their 1-0 win at Doncaster, leaving them 14th in League One.
There was just one fixture for Ross County this week as they lost 3-1 at home to St Mirren, with Joe Hilton an unused substitute once again.
The result leaves them currently occupying the relegation play-off spot, two points from guaranteed safety.
