Has Leeds United forward Lee Erwin made a big mistake in his loan move to Bury?

The Scot may not be guaranteed first-team football, even in League One.

Leeds United summer signing Lee Erwin has made an emergency loan move away from the club today. As HITC Sport first reported yesterday League One outfit Bury have signed the 21-year-old on a 28-day loan after the young Scot failed to make an immediate impact at Leeds.

The forward was signed on a free transfer from Motherwell this summer but the Scottish talent is struggling to shift the likes of Mirco Antenucci and Chris Wood from the first-team at Elland Road and a spell away from the club in the near future appealed to the player.

But could Bury be a poor choice?

The Shakers are currently third in League One and looking good for a potential high finish this season.

But Erwin may once again be struggling to play regular football now he has made the move to Gigg Lane.

Bury currently have two very experienced and ruthless strikers in their ranks already. Tom Pope, who has scored goals at this level for some time with Port Vale is a starting striker along with Leon Clarke. The former Wolves man has scored seven goals in nine appearances this term.

With former Everton talent Hallam Hope and Danny Rose also in reserve it will be interesting to see just how much playing time Erwin will actually get during this loan spell.

Otherwise he might be warming the bench for a League One side for the rest of the year.
