Elder has scored twice in five appearances since joining on loan

Hereford United's on-loan striker Nathan Elder is set to extend his spell at Edgar Street for a further month.

The 26-year-old has netted twice in five appearances since joining from Hayes and Yeading.

"He's been fantastic and has fitted in well with his performances and how hard he is working," Bulls boss Jamie Pitman told BBC Hereford and Worcester.

"His work rate has been fantastic and that is what is keeping him in the team at the moment."

Elder scored in the wins over Barnet and Northampton Town as three successive victories have moved United out of the League Two relegation places.

"At the moment he is on loan from Hayes and Yeading and we are looking to continue with that loan period until January," Pitman added.

"Then, come the new year, we will reassess it and if he continues the way he is doing he will prove a point."

Meanwhile, United's central defender Janos Kovacs is back at Edgar Street after his loan spell at Luton Town expired.

Kovacs has struggled for first-team opportunities at Hereford this season and Pitman admits all parties feel he would be better off returning to Kenilworth Road.

"He's back here at the moment and there are ongoing discussions about it all," he said.

"Janos obviously wants to go there because he is playing games and we are happy for him to go there.

"We have now got to come to some arrangement as to how things are going to progress and we are doing that as quickly as possible."
