Accrington have extended the loan of midfielder Anthony Barry with the club, but have released goalkeeper Luke Simpson and midfielder Craig Roddan.

Barry, 28, will stay at the Lancashire side until the end of the season on loan from Forest Green Rovers.

Simpson, 20, joined on six-month contract after his release by Oldham and made nine appearances.

Former Liverpool midfielder Roddan, 21, signed a short-term deal in November but featured just once as a substitute.

"He's a good player, he's willing and ready and I know that he wants to be playing," said boss John Coleman on Barry's loan extension.

"He loves the club and we didn't have to think twice about extending the deal."
