Southend United have signed Cameron Belford on loan from Bury following an injury to first-choice goalkeeper Glenn Morris.
The League Two club will be without Morris for Saturday's game at Burton Albion due to a thigh problem and have drafted in Belford as cover.
Belford has made 27 appearances for Bury in all competitions this season, but has lost his place following the recent return to Gigg Lane of Trevor Carson.
The 23-year-old has now been allowed to link up with Southend for the next month and he is expected to start against Burton.
Formerly of Coventry City, Belford has made over 70 appearances for the Shakers since joining the club in 2007.
