LIAM Trotter is joining Scunthorpe this week on a month's loan - and Ipswich Town assistant manager John Gorman has confirmed that he rates the 20-year-old.

LIAM Trotter is joining Scunthorpe this week on a month's loan - and Ipswich Town assistant manager John Gorman has confirmed that he rates the 20-year-old.

“The move will give Liam a chance to play, but part of me is sorry to see him go as he is a good player,” said Gorman.

“He will be very much back in our thoughts when he returns.”

Former Northgate High School pupil Trotter's contract ends on June 30, and after appearing in five of the Town's opening six games this season he has not featured since.

Trotter, who was on loan at Grimsby earlier in the season, said he enjoyed his time on trial at Glanford Park.

“I enjoyed the few days I spent with them,” said Trotter. “They are going well in League One, play good football and it's a chance for me to play first team football, which is what I need.”

Ipswich winger Jaime Peters has returned to the club after deciding not to renew his loan spell at Gillingham.

Striker Jordan Rhodes scored the sixth goal of his loan spell with Brentford as the top-of-the-table Bees defeated his former loan club Rochdale 2-1 at Spotland.

Also on the scoresheet was young left-back Kurt Robinson, who netted his first senior goal in Rushden and Diamonds' 9-0 away victory at crisis club Weymouth, who fielded a very young side due to a number of senior players leaving because of financial problems.

Billy Clarke failed to score for Northampton as the Cobblers lost 2-0 at home to Walsall. Clarke hasn't hit the net since grabbing a hat-trick on his debut for Northampton and was replaced in the 68th minute of his fifth game for the League One club.
