FC Halifax Town have signed striker Marcus Carver on a month’s loan from Accrington Stanley.

The 19-year-old scored for Accrington in their 2-1 win at Middlesbrough in this year’s Capital One Cup.

He is expected to go straight into the squad for Saturday’s game against Barnet with Lee Gregory out injured and Kevin Holsgrove and Josh Wilson both suspended.
