Braintree Town have signed midfielder Brendan Kiernan on a four-week loan from AFC Wimbledon.
Kiernan, 19, is set to go straight into the side for Saturday's Blue Square Bet Premier match at home to Barrow.
Iron manager Alan Devonshire told BBC Essex: "He's thought of highly at Wimbledon, and we're looking forward to helping him progress."
"He can play wide left, wide right, in behind the striker or up front, so it gives us different options."
Kiernan has only made one start for AFC Wimbledon but has come off the bench several times in recent weeks.
