Wrexham have signed Swansea City defender Scott Tancock on a one-month loan to cover for injuries and Blaine Hudson's suspension.

The 20-year-old spent seven weeks on loan at Newport County earlier this season, starting four games.

The Wales under-21 international is available for Saturday's match against Altrincham, subject to league approval.

Defender Hudson will miss the game following a red card against Braintree, while James Pearson has a quad injury.

Tancock is eligible to play in Wrexham's FA Cup second round tie with Maidstone on Saturday, 6 December, which will be broadcast live on BBC Two Wales.

Wrexham also signed goalkeeper Jonathan Flatt on a month's loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers yesterday to cover for injuries to Andy Coughlin and Dan Bachmann.
