AFC Telford United have signed FC Halifax Town striker Ross Dyer on loan until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old former Mansfield Town man could make his Bucks debut against another of his old clubs in Saturday's trip to Forest Green.

Cannock-based Dyer, who started at Hednesford Town, netted five times in his season at Forest Green in 2010-11.

He then moved to Mansfield, scoring 12 goals in 62 games, but was injured for most of their 2012-13 promotion season.

Telford propping up the rest again
Telford dropped back to last place in the Conference as a result of last weekend's 3-2 home defeat by Dartford. Since crashing out of the FA Trophy at Fylde, Telford have picked up just one draw in three league games. Steve Kittrick's side are now nine points from safety with 14 games left to play.

He went out on loan to Hereford United last season, netting three times in five games for the Bulls.

Dyer then joined Halifax following his release by Mansfield last summer, since when he has spent another month out on loan at Southport, another of Telford's relegation rivals.

But his only goal in 19 Conference appearances this season was for Halifax back in early September.
