Bristol Rovers have added Reading midfielder Scott Davies to their squad on an initial month-long loan deal.
Davies has not featured in Reading's first team this season and had a spell on loan at League Two side Wycombe Wanderers earlier in the campaign.
He has now linked up with Rovers and will go straight into manager Dave Penney's squad for Saturday's League One fixture at Walsall.
"Scott is a midfielder who we've known about for a while and he's been out on loan at Aldershot and at Wycombe where he's gained some invaluable experience," Penney told the club's official website.
"It gives us another body in midfield, where we were going to be a little bit lightweight due to the fact that Chris Lines is suspended for the next two games, and Scott goes straight into the squad for tomorrow's game."
Davies becomes Penney's second signing on Friday after the Pirates boss earlier brought in striker Rene Howe on loan from Peterborough United.
