BLACKBURN Rovers loanee Jamie Clarke is thought to be struggling of late with the players moral being low after a string of goalless performances since he joined in July.

Clarke started each of Accrington Stanley’s opening eight games before dropping to the bench for the visit to Barnet’s Underhill, in a game that John Coleman’s men were beaten 2-1, where he came on to replace John Miles with 15 minutes remaining.

But since Clarke has been on and off the teamsheet and hasn’t made an appearance since with Tranmere Rovers loan sensation Terry Gornell replacing him in the side and scoring three times in three consecutive games.

The 19-year-olds only goal for the Red’s so far came in Stanley’s defeat at Exeter, in which Clarke opened the scoring when he cut in from the right before firing a low shot past keeper Paul Jones.

Clarke’s substitute status is thought to be conserning manager Paul Ince who wants the player to be playing regularly following a serious injury last season.
