Jake Speight: Mansfield Town striker joins Alfreton on loan

Alfreton Town have signed striker Jake Speight from League Two club Mansfield Town on a one-month loan deal.

The 28-year-old, who re-joined the Stags from Wrexham in July 2012, has made two substitute appearances for the club this season.

He comes in as injury cover after Dan Wishart was the latest to be sidelined, leaving Reds boss Nicky Laws with only 13 fit players.

Speight is available for selection at Gateshead on Saturday.

The former Bradford City and Sheffield United striker scored six goals in 21 games to help Mansfield win promotion back to the Football League as Conference Premier champions last term.

Fellow Stags striker Ross Dyer has also gone out on a one-month loan to Hereford United.
