BOWYER FEARS FOXES RAID ON TALENTED TOM
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.”
