National League play-off hopefuls Braintree Town have signed striker Harry Cardwell on loan from Championship Reading until 30 April.
The 19-year-old has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Royals, but had a five-game loan spell at Woking earlier this season.
Cardwell, a Scotland Under-21 international, joined Reading from Hull City in the summer of 2013.
He is in line to make his Iron debut against Bromley on Friday.
