Conference bottom club AFC Telford have extended defender Andy Parry's loan from Luton Town for a further month.

The 23-year-old, who first played under Bucks boss Liam Watson when he was in charge at Southport, signed on a month-long deal on 7 October.

But he has proved a success at the Bucks Head and the deal has been extended until 2 December, taking in another five Conference games.

Telford conceded 36 goals in their first 14 Conference games this season.

The Bucks Head factor
Telford's home game with Altrincham on Wednesday marks the start of a run of five games, four of which are at the Bucks Head, which could define their season.After this Saturday's trip to Barnet, they then host Basingstoke in their FA Cup first round replay - the winners of which will travel to League One leaders Bristol City - followed by home games with Braintree and Grimsby.

That was the worst 'goals against' column in English football's top five divisions. But, since Parry came in, they have let in just eight in seven league and cup matches.

Parry first arrived at Luton in August 2013, in the same deal as winger Shaun Whalley, who was loaned to Telford last season.

Telford, who are five points adrift at the bottom of the table, play their next game at home to Altrincham on Wednesday.
