Burton linked with Forrester
Former Doncaster Rovers midfielder Harry Forrester has been linked with a move to Championship club Burton Albion.
He has been told to find a new club by Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha, who has made it clear that Forrester does not feature in his plans for this season, with Forrester told during the summer to stay away from the club's training ground.
However, Forrester still has not found a new club, with reported moves to Southend United and Charlton Athletic coming to nothing
Burton are one of the latest clubs to be linked with a move for the former Brentford man, with Bolton Wanderers the latest club to be alleged to be linked to him.
Forrester has two years to run on his Rangers contract, but can leave the club on a free transfer - if anyone is interested!

Wright returns to Oldham
Former Rovers winger Tommy Wright has returned to Oldham Athletic to again be assistant manager to ex-Rover John Sheridan.
Wright, now aged 51,has previously worked as assistant to both Sheridan and five years later to Lee Johnson, and is starting on a remarkable fifth stint at the club, which includes two as a player.
Wright has been out of football since September 2016 when he lost his job at Barnsley following allegations that he took a £5,000 payment from under cover reporters posing as football agents. Tommy insisted that he breached any FA rules, with his lawyer stating at the time: "Any suggested acts contrary to criminal law or those of the FA and Fifa are categorically denied."
He becomes part of an ever-growing former Rovers contingent at Oldham, with ex-Rovers midfielder Richie Wellens also at the club as first team coach.

McCormack's ongoing transfer saga
At one stage, it looked like ex-Rovers loan striker Ross McCormack may be getting back into Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce's good books - but despite being included in Villa's pre-season trip to Portugal, he has been out of the first team picture at Villa Park, with Villa and his agent working on a move away from the club.
However, his reported £45,000 per week wages are continuing to be a stumbling block, with any potential new employers understandably unwilling to foot such a bill.
A loan move still looks to be the most likely, with a prospective move to Championship club Sunderland looking to be the most likely. Sunderland boss Simon Grayson worked with McCormack when the pair were at Leeds United.
Villa paid £12 million for McCormack only last summer, but a series of ongoing problems with the player, accompanied by various injuries, saw him score just three goals in 20 games last season.

Leeds to play friendly as part of Blunt move
Leeds United have agreed to play a friendly match at non-league Mousehole AFC in October, which will mark the creation of Mousehold's new elite youth player development programme - which is being headed by new Academy Director Jason Blunt, who made the switch from the Leeds training academy at Thorp Arch to Mousehold earlier this summer.
Leeds have not confirmed the strength of the side that is likely to travel to Trungle Park, but Blunt will be hoping for a few big names to swell interest in the game.

Voting results v Blackburn

We received nominations for seven different players to be the "Man of the Match" for last Saturday's away game at Blackburn Rovers.
Only two of those received a significant number of votes, which were:
1 Joe Wright (46.15%)

We thank everyone for participating in the voting. Hopefully, votes will in future open on time, with the next set to open on Sunday, following Saturday's home game against Blackpool.
