Slew joins Oldham on loan

Slew joins Oldham on loan

Rovers have allowed young striker Jordan Slew to join Oldham Athletic on a six month loan deal.

Slew has been unable to make a breakthrough since joining from Sheffield United on deadline day last summer, as a result the club have loaned him out to League One Latics to gain further experience in a first team side.

What's more surprising is that Rovers seem to have hand picked the club for Jordan to join, having sent a current first team player on loan there a few seasons back.

The Oldham manager told the Latics official site - 'They saw how Jason Lowe came on when he came on loan the season before last and also the way we try to play football.'

I personally hope to see Slew recover some of the spark he was showing when he was a Sheffield United player.

I agree. Did not want to see us getting rid of him permanently. The lad clearly has talent, hopefully he bangs in the goals for Oldham.

Could be a very good move for the lad good luck to him. Hopefully blackman gets off the books soon!

Slew has been one of the few players scoring goals in pre-season, one in each of the last two reserve games. With our main striker out for 6 months, Rhodes (bluff) bid exposed. It seems to me that this is a little premature.

Slew is like an ashtray on a motorbike useless

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Blackburn`s game against Doncaster had already been called off. If it hadn`t, it definitely would with the Republic of Ireland`s decision to include two defenders in the final squad.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
