Michael Duckworth in action for Fleetwood

Duckworth has only made four league appearances at the start of the season for Town after joining from League Two side Hartlepool.

The 24-year-old’s last appearance for Town was in the 2-0 defeat to Oldham in the EFL Cup back in October but he picked up a groin injury after that game.

Due to that injury Town brought in former Barcelona youth team defender Godswill Ekpolo as extra cover for first-choice right-back Conor McLaughlin with Duckworth now being loaned out to Jim Bentley’s Morecambe side.
