SWINDON TOWN: Rooney makes Burton switch
6:00am Friday 28th September 2012 in Sport
SWINDON Town midfielder Luke Rooney has joined Burton Albion on a one-month loan deal.
The winger, who arrived at the County Ground from Gillingham in January for an undisclosed fee, has scored twice in 24 appearances for the Robins since his move but has struggled to make an impact on manager Paolo Di Canio’s matchday squad this season.
Rooney has come off the bench three times for Town this term and his only start of the campaign, at Preston, came to an abrupt end when he was hauled off at half-time.
The 21-year-old will be hoping for a more regular dose of first-team football at the Pirelli Stadium under manager Gary Rowett.
