WALLACE’S SCUNTHORPE LOAN EXTENDED

28 September 2015

Defender staying with The Iron until 31 October 2015 inclusive

- Murray Wallace's loan at Scunthorpe United extended
- Huddersfield Town defender staying until 31 October
- Reaction from Town Manager Chris Powell

Huddersfield Town defender Murray Wallace’s Emergency Loan at Sky Bet League 1 club Scunthorpe United has today been extended until 31 October 2015 inclusive.  
 
As the duration of the loan has now extended beyond 28 days, he can be recalled at 24 hours’ notice.
 
The 22 year-old defender has made six starts during his initial month’s stay at Glanford Park, scoring once during a 2-1 defeat at Rochdale on 19 September. In those games, Mark Robins’ side has won once, drawn once and lost four times.
 
Ahead of this loan, his only Town appearance of 2015/16 came in the Capital One Cup game at home to Notts County; a game in which he scored. 
 
Having joined Town from Scottish side Falkirk in January 2012, he has gone on to make 41 starts and 17 substitute appearances for the Terriers, scoring four goals.

Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell explained:
 
“As things stand, it made perfect sense to extend Murray’s loan spell at Scunthorpe United for a further month.
 
“Murray has started every game during his time at Scunthorpe, which is exactly what we wanted to see. His performances have been good and Mark Robins was keen to keep him at the Club. This experience will be good for his development as a centre half.
 
“I’m happy with the defensive personnel at my disposal at the moment but, if that situation changes, we now have the ability to recall Murray.” 

Town winger Joe Lolley made the first start of his loan spell at Scunthorpe United alongside Murray in the Iron's 2-1 defeat at Southend United on Saturday.
