SCOTT Barron is today expected to join League Two side Wrexham on loan as Ipswich Town seek to off-load a number of fringe players.

But it seems unlikely that the Blues will land a loan player for themselves today when the 'emergency' loan window opens.

Last night Town manager Jim Magilton was not confident of bringing in any sort of cover today but he remains on the look-out for another defender and midfielder or an experienced attacker.
