Blackburn right-back Anthony O'Connor has extended his loan stay at Burton until January.

O'Connor joined the Brewers last month on an initial month-long deal and has started all five of the club's League Two matches plus their impressive Capital One Cup triumph at Leicester.

O'Connor, 19, will remain at the Pirelli Stadium until January 12 and has been cleared for involvement in the FA Cup.

"I'm delighted to extend my loan until January," O'Connor told Albion's official website. "Over the past month, I've felt as though I've done well and I've been taking it each game at a time. Now I'm really happy to have extended it.

"It's been brilliant (playing first-team football). I wasn't involved as much as I would have liked to have been at Blackburn so I had to get out and play. Burton gave me the chance to do that and I feel I'm a better player already from the time I've been here."
