Dyer has linked up with Hereford United while Speight has joined Alfreton Town, each for a month. Both players have found first team opportunities hard to come by this season.

Manager Paul Cox said: "As with other players who have headed out on loan, these moves for Ross and Jake will give them competitive first team football for a month. Hopefully, they will return to the club sharper both mentally and physically."

Martin Foyle strengthens his squad with the addition of two loan signings ahead of tomorrow's game against Dartford.

With injury and suspension leaving Foyle with limited options, The Bulls boss has bought in Kevin Krans from Bristol City and Ross Dyer from Mansfield Town, both players join on one month loan deals.

Krans who signed an 18 month contract extension with Championship side Bristol City in February. At the time he was catching the eye of then European Champions Chelsea, but opted to sign an extension with The Robins.

The young Frenchman scored the only goal of a behind-closed-doors friendly game between Bristol City and The Bulls earlier in September.

Ross Dyer is a 25 year old striker who joins from Mansfield for who he has made almost 50 appearances since arriving from Forest Green Rovers in 2011.

Both players are available for selection when The Bulls take on Dartford at Edgar Street tomorrow.

Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law has brought in former Bradford City and Wrexham striker Jake Speight in on a month's loan from League Two neighbours Mansfield Town.

Speight, 28, will be with the Reds until November 12th, 2013, inclusive.

He began his career with Sheffield United before being loaned out to Leigh RMI after which he went on to play for Scarborough, Bury, Northwich Victoria, Farsley Celtic, Droylsden and Mansfield Town.

A £25,000 transfer followed to Bradford City where he signed on a two-year deal before moving to Wrexham for whom he scored a hat-trick against the Reds in a 4-1 win at the Impact Arena on August Bank Holiday Saturday, 2011.

A move to Wrexham came in June 2011, again on a two-year deal, but after scoring 21 goals in 38 appearances for the Welsh club, he was transferred to Mansfield one year later to be nearer his Sheffield home.

He was part of the 2012/13 season Stags' title-winning squad but missed the second half of the campaign due to a knee injury.

Jake has been handed squad number 11 and he goes straight into the team for Saturday's game at Gateshead.
