Burton Albion striker Greg Pearson has joined League Two rivals Aldershot on loan until until January 7, 2012.
Pearson has found first-team opportunities limited at the Pirelli Stadium since suffering a broken toe at the start of the season.
"Greg has been unfortunate so far this season," Albion boss Paul Peschisolido told the club's official website.
"He picked up his injury which kept him out for a while and now he has come back fit at a time when the goals are flowing from the other strikers currently in the team.
"Hopefully by going out on loan he will get some games and score some goals."
