Wolves defender Matt Doherty joins Bury on loan

Wolves defender Matt Doherty has signed a three-month loan deal with Bury.

He becomes Kevin Blackwell's first signing since the former Sheffield United manager took charge of the League One strugglers on 26 September.

Signed from Irish club Bohemians in 2010, 20-year-old Doherty has played six times for Wolves but has yet to feature at first-team level in 2012-13.

He spent the second half of last season with Hibernian and started their Scottish Cup final defeat by Hearts.

Doherty could make his debut for the Shakers, who are still to win a competitive game this season, against Swindon at Gigg Lane on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Bury have recalled striker Andy Bishop from his loan spell at Wrexham.
