Jake Cottrell has boosted FC United's play-off push by signing a contract that keeps him at the club until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old central midfielder has arguably been the Rebels' player of the season so far, and Karl Marginson is delighted that he has agreed to stay at Gigg Lane.

"It's great news that Jake has signed - he's performed consistently well throughout the season," said the manager.

FC have also signed Cyprus under-21 international midfielder Angelos Tsiaklis from Wrexham and centre-back Mark Ayres from Salford City this week.

The Rebels travel to Frickley on Saturday (3pm) looking for their fourth-straight league win.
