Football - Brown extends Sandgrounders stay

Chesterfield defender Matty Brown has had his loan spell at Southport extended.

PA Sport Report

Brown joined the Skrill Premier club in October on an initial one-month deal which expired after the Sandgrounders' 5-1 league defeat at Aldershot on Saturday.

The 23-year-old summer signing has yet to feature for the Spireites since joining the club from non-league Marine.

He scored on his Southport debut this month as Alan Wright's men became the first team to defeat league leaders Cambridge, beating the U's 1-0 on November 2.

Brown has made five appearances for Southport but came off at half-time during their loss at Aldershot on Saturday with a tight hamstring and he is not expected to be fit in time for their trip to Luton on Tuesday night.
