Southend United have brought Gateshead goalkeeper James Montgomery in on loan.
The 26-year-old joins after an injury to Portsmouth loan keeper Alex Bass, with Mark Oxley also unavailable.
Gateshead say the deal is an initial seven-day emergency loan.
Montgomery was straight into the starting line-up for last night’s 1-0 League Two defeat to leaders Cheltenham Town.
Mark Molesley’s side are two points above the relegation zone, though have played two more games than Grimsby Town and Barrow.
