The former Luton Town man was recently released by Skrill Premier title rivals Cambridge United.

Manager Tommy Wright, who is seeking cover for injured players, said: “We can’t go with four defenders for the rest of the season.

“The only other fit centre-back is Ally Gilchrist, who has just played U20 football.

“If need be we will use him but I think it would be remiss of me if I didn’t bring somebody in going into such a crucial part of the season.

“We are looking at one or two options and will then make a decision.”
