Struggling Grimsby have swelled their ranks with the capture of a trio of players ahead of the loan transfer deadline.
The Mariners are just two places off the foot of League Two and manager Alan Buckley has moved to increase his options with the loan signings of Stoke duo Anthony Pulis (pictured) and Martin Paterson and Birmingham winger Peter Till.
Buckley is happy with his trio of new players, as he noted: "Anthony Pulis will give us some bite in midfield and Martin Paterson is an extra option up front.
"Till is a wide player and I'm delighted to have signed all three of them."
Buckley, meanwhile, has trimmed his squad by releasing three young players in defenders Ben Higgins and Miles Chamberlain, and midfielder Paul Ashton.
