BOWYER FEARS FOXES RAID ON TAL­ENTED TOM

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

BLACK­BURN Rovers man­ager Gary Bowyer fears he could be­come the vic­tim of loan star Tom Lawrence’s suc­cess and lose the for­ward to par­ent club Le­ices­ter City.

The 21-year-old has put in sev­eral stel­lar show­ings at Ewood Park this term, lead­ing Bowyer to draw com­par­isons be­tween Lawrence and his Le­ices­ter team-mate Jamie Vardy.

Now, though, the Rovers boss fears Lawrence’s form could work against his side should Foxes boss Clau­dio Ranieri de­cide he needs another at­tack­ing op­tion.

“We would love to have him for the whole sea­son if we can,” said Bowyer of Lawrence, who is on loan with the Cham­pi­onship side un­til Jan­uary 3.

“But given the level of per­for­mances he’s pro­duc­ing for us at the mo­ment, the down­side of it is that they could re­call him and put him in and around their first team.”

SUC­CESS: Tom Lawrence
