The Kettering-born frontman broke onto the scene early with Nottingham Forest under the watchful eye of Brian Clough. However, his progress at the City Ground was hindered by a long-term injury, not long after making his bow with Scotland U21s.
On his return David Pleat offered him the chance to get back to full fitness, and get his career firmly back on track, at Filbert Street in September 1989. He made his debut that month at Bradford City and made five appearances for the Foxes, three starts, netting the one goal.
He only stayed a month but it benefited both parties. Glover got much-needed first-team action following his serious injury and City had a replacement in attack when they were short in numbers owing to injury and suspension. He only grabbed the one goal but he gave Leicester their first win of the season against Brighton.
He suffered more mis-fortune with a broken leg on his return to Forest, playing for their reserves, but got as runners-up medal as they lost to Spurs in the FA Cup final of 1992. He went on to play for Port Vale, Rotherham United, Huddersfield Town and Mansfield Town amongst others.
