Cheltenham Town have lost two games in the National League this season

Cheltenham Town have signed Reading striker Andrija Novakovich on an emergency loan until 2 January.

The 19-year-old featured twice as a substitute for the Royals in the Championship last season.

The United States Under-20 international links up with the National League leaders, who face Aldershot on Saturday.

"We have been keeping an eye on him for a while," Robins manager Gary Johnson told BBC Radio Gloucestershire.

"He is an athletic boy who is very fit. He is a competitive lad too, which is good, so we are pleased we have that other string to our bow."
