The Shay

FC Halifax Town have signed Accrington Stanley striker Marcus Carver on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old has made 17 league appearances for the League Two side since making his debut in the final weeks of the 2011-12 season.

He scored his first goal for the club in their shock Capital One Cup win over Middlesbrough last month.

The Shaymen could give Carver his debut in Saturday's Conference Premier game against second-placed Barnet.
