Accrington have extended on-loan Fleetwood defender Rob Atkinson's stay at the club for a further month.

The 25-year-old joined the Reds on the eve of last month's home game with Aldershot and has gone on to make seven appearances for the League Two outfit.

"We're very pleased that Rob is staying," Stanley caretaker manager Leam Richardson said. "We really appreciate the help from Fleetwood and Micky Mellon.

"I think Rob has settled in really well in his first month and he's proved himself to be a good player and a good lad. Hopefully he can go from strength to strength with us."

Atkinson has been granted permission to play for Accrington in the FA Cup so could feature at Fleetwood's neighbours AFC Fylde on Saturday.
