And Skiverton is hoping that Downes can make his mark between now and the end of the season.
"He came on and had nothing to lose really. I'll be looking for him to have a good end to the season now," he said.
"He looked good in the 45 minutes he was on and we'll be looking to use him as a striker.
"We've got enough wide players so we'll use Aidan up top and hopefully he can do well for us."
