Blackpool recall keeper Mark Halstead from Barrow loan


Barrow's emergency loan signing Mark Halstead has been recalled by parent club Blackpool after just one game at Holker Street.

Halstead, 20, had signed a month's loan deal on Friday.

But he was eligible to be recalled early because he is a goalkeeper and Ian Holloway's Premier League side faced extenuating circumstances.

A scan on Matt Gilks' knee injury suffered at West Ham on Saturday showed it to be worse than first thought.

In his one match for Barrow, Halstead helped Dave Bayliss and Darren Sheridan's side to a 2-0 win over AFC Wimbledon in Blue Square Bet Premier.

But Barrow will now wait for news on Chris Masters who was injured at Millwall while on trial and underwent groin surgery last Friday.

Barrow had already lost goalkeeper Alan Martin who suffered an ankle injury while on loan from Leeds.
