Athletic have managed to extend the loan spell of Matt Derbyshire the Nottingham Forest striker who played the final game of his initial loan spell in the 1-1 draw at Crawley last Saturday. His short-term loan is allowed to run for a maximum of 93 days so he may be released from duty for next Saturday's FA Cup game at Kidderminster Harriers. This will allow him to re-sign for the following Tuesday's home league game with Bury. Dickov announced, "Derbs will be staying. It is just a case of whether we review it before the FA Cup game or after. If he plays on Saturday then he has to go back in mid-December. If we can work it right, he will be here until January."
