Hartlepool United hopeful of extending Tyler Magloire's loan from Blackburn Rovers ahead of Halifax Town match

Tyler Magloire’s short-term loan from Blackburn Rovers has expired following Hartlepool United’s 3-1 win over Weladstone.

Magloire has featured regularly in the Pools side since arriving on loan from the Championship outfit back in November.

He played the full 90-minutes on Saturday as Pools claimed their fourth straight National League win to stay second in the table.

And with Pools set to travel to Halifax Town on Tuesday night (7pm kick-off), manager Dave Challinor is keen to get an extension sorted in time.

"Hopefully he won’t go back,” he said following Saturday's win. “We’ve had positive conversations with Blackburn so we’re waiting for them to come back.

"With his loan being up, we’re on a tight schedule whether that happens in time for Tuesday. Things work differently at Blackburn with their owners being over in India, things need to be passed across.

"I know they had a meeting on Friday and we’re hopeful of doing something but if that’s not the case then we need to make a change for Tuesday.

"It’s not one we’ve given up on, we’re hopeful something will get done and if that’s in time for Tuesday then great but if not then an opportunity arises for somebody else to step in but we’ve got lots of competition and options to come into the side.

“Gary Liddle is close but won’t be available on Tuesday. If we do have to make a change for Tyler then [Lewis] Cass is available and he was unfortunate to miss out on Saturday.”
