Southend striker Matt Paterson has extended his loan spell at Stockport until the end of the season.
The former Southampton trainee has made six starts and scored two goals for County during his initial one-month spell.
He will remain at Edgeley Park until May 7 as the club seek to avoid relegation from the Football League.
Paterson will not be allowed to play against Southend on March 26 when Paul Sturrock's side travel to Stockport.
The Shrimpers will also have a 24-hour recall clause in the loan agreement.
