Mark Yeates has been training today with Division Two side Brighton and Hove Albion and is due to begin a one-month loan at the Withdean Stadium on Friday. The 18-year-old Republic of Ireland youth international could go straight into Mark McGhee's side to face Bristol City on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Johnnie Jackson played for Coventry City Reserves last night in their 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest's second string. Johnnie, 21, played the full 90 minutes and was involved in Coventry's goal. He is currently on trial at Highfield Road with a view to a loan deal.
Two of young players are set to begin loan spells with Nationwide clubs in a bid to further their experience.
