Former Bulls loan keeper David Cornell is to return to Swansea when his St Mirren loan expires tomorrow. The 22 year old made only six appearances for the SPL side, the last in September, as first ex-Hyde loanee Christopher Dilo then Slovakian Marian Kello were used in his place. Alfreton have allowed utility man Alastair Taylor to join Conf North side Gainsborough for a month. The 22 year old has made just one start for the Reds this term.

Luton loanee Pelly Ruddock has been recalled to West Ham. The utility man played four times for the Hatters in the Conference, with them winning every game and netting 17 goals. Macclesfield have announced that defender Steve Williams is the last of their current squad to agree a contract extension to the end of the season. Three younger players will leave Moss Rose, with striker Jay Burgess the only one of the trio to have had any first team experience.
Lincoln defender Alan Power will miss four games after the club decided not to appeal against his second red card of the season on Saturday. Midfielder Jake Sheridan is also serving a three match ban after being sent off on Boxing Day.

Later Keith Hall spoke to Brown for BBC Hereford and Worcester.
"I'm buzzing," said Brown.
"I thought all the boys were terrific and I thought we throughly deserved the three points in the end."
Brown scored his goal after winger Micah Evans had passed several FGR players before crossing the ball.
"I think he did it all game long, putting balls into good areas."
As for his goal.
"I had Josh O'Keefe coming behind me and was going to leave it at one point.
"But I thought no, I got my head over the ball and thankfully it went to the bottom corner for me."
Forest Green pushed Hereford in the second half.
"The back four were tremendous, O'Keefe as well.
"The gaffer made the point before the game that if we took the work-rate from the Cambridge game and the second half at Kidderminster into this game then hopefully we could get three points and we proved that."
Danny Leadbitter came on as a sub after his two match suspension.
"It was a bit harsh the two game suspension for himself but Dom Collins has done tremendous as well. There's going to be competition for places."
Finally thanks to the fans.
"They were awesome tonight especially towards the end, like a twelve man.
"A few of us were tired especially me having been out for five weeks.
"Hopefully they will stick with us until the end of thje season."
Jon Brown's first half goal gave the Bulls all three points in tonight's televised game against Forest Green.
A solid performance saw the few threats the Gumpers offered nulled by a classy defensive performance. The Bulls rise one place in the table as a result.
Full report later.
Ahead of tonight's game with the Bulls, he told the Gloucester Citizen: “It is a complete contrast to be honest. He has come in and made an impression and the camp is really good, and we are enjoying it at the minute.
“The togetherness wasn’t really there, so I think he has pulled the squad closer together. He has made a few little adjustments with the training situation and it’s working. Everyone is really positive and I think it is showing on the pitch as well.”
Russell admits the Gumpers haven't started the season well, but they are still aiming to get promoted even if they are nine points shy of fifth place with half the season gone:
“It’s been a very strange season so far and it is still fairly early. The pressure was coming from outside the club, being where we are at the minute, and we are there for a reason.
“The only way is up. If we keep plugging away and getting results here and there I think we will surprise a lot of people again. In the back of our heads promotion is obviously what we want and it is going to be a big ask.”
The Gumpers won their last visit - their first league win in nine attempts at Edgar Street, although they did win a FA Trophy semi-final match in 2001.
(As opposed to the Wigan FA Cup game in November 2002 which kicked off at 5.35 - teatime not evening!)
