Rovers midfielder Alex Marrow has left Rovers on loan to Fleetwood for the remainder of the season, after failing to force his way into the first team.

Marrow did manage a few games towards the start of the campaign but the signings of Tom Cairney and Corry Evans coupled with the return to fitness of Lee Williamson has see him become a peripheral figure.

As a result, the player has opted for a move to pastures new with a move down the road to Fleetwood.

‘He needs to play games,’ Bowyer told the club’s official website. ‘He came back and did ever so well for us at the start.

‘Then we felt we just needed to just change it a little bit in midfield and we were able to bring Corry Evans and Tom Cairney in, whilst Lee Williamson came back from injury.

‘So it has been tough for Alex but he now has this opportunity to go and play games and that should suit everybody concerned.’

In truth, Marrow’s signing was seen as something of a low cost gamble. He has been unable to break free from the ‘career highlight’ of winning a ball juggling contest in Manchester and a move is probably best for all concerned.
