Kevin Blackwell: Curtains for Byrne

Byrne enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Shakers last term and put pen to paper on a two-year contract in August having been released by Leicester.

He made the last of four appearances during the current campaign in October's Johnstone's Paint Trophy penalty shoot-out triumph over local rivals Rochdale.

The 19-year-old has since endured a deeply frustrating period on the sidelines due to a blood infection.

"He's got that viral infection that we know about and he's just got to hope that we can get him through a month where he doesn't have a relapse," Blackwell explained. "Then, hopefully, that's the point that he can move on.

"There's no doubt we're looking at next season. This season's gone for Shane."

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
