MANAGER Ronnie Moore is looking to sign a left-back on loan ahead of tomorrow's League One encounter with Port Vale after hearing that Evan Horwood will be out for at least a fortnight with a groin injury.
Horwood is the only specialist left-back in the squad. He sustained the injury during Rovers' 2-0 defeat to Stoke City in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday. Danny Holmes, a right-back, covered the position in the second half of the Stoke game. However, Holmes had to miss training yesterday because of sickness and is doubtful for Port Vale's visit.
Moore says he has secured agreement from Crewe Alexandra to extend Adam Dugdale's loan from Crewe Alexandra into a second month.
The centre-back's initial term will expire after this weekend.
