Cardiff City youngster Darren Dennehy has joined Hereford United on a month's loan.
The 6ft 3in centre-half will be available for the League One strugglers' crucial home clash with Southend on Saturday.
Graham Turner's side currently lie second-from-bottom of the table, five points adrift of safety.
Dennehy has trained with the strugglers for a couple of weeks and played in their recent practice game against Bristol Rovers.
The Republic of Ireland international has yet to play for the Bluebirds after signing in the summer of 2008. He previously completed a three-year apprenticeship at Everton.
