Ian Burchnall said “As disappointed as we are to have lost Sam, we’re delighted to have been able to add another quality loan player in Anthony.

“He trained with the boys today and we’ll do everything we can to fully prepare him.

"Contact injuries like Sam’s and Connell Rawlinson’s are inevitable over the course of a long season but to lose them both at the same time as Kyle Cameron is very unfortunate.

"These are the challenges football poses, though, and the important thing is to be prepared to deal with them, which I feel we have been.”
