Rovers have today completed the loan signings of David Wheater and Kevin Horlock.

David Wheater is an 18 year old centre back from Middlesborough. Wheater is the England Under 19’s squad to face Slovakia Under 19’s at Sixfields on February 28th. It is expected that Wheater will replace the out-of-form Mark Albrighton.

Kevin Horlock is a former Northern Ireland international, who has played 14 times for Ipswich this season. He will add much needed experience to the Rovers midfield.

Both players have signed on loan for a month and are available for selection for tomorrow’s local derby.
