Anthony O'Connor has extend his loan spell with Burton Albion until the end of the season.

Initially signed on a month-long deal back in August, it was quickly extended to the turn of the year after solid displays at right-back for the Brewers.

With that loan deal ending after Burton's home win against Torquay United this weekend Burton boss Gary Rowett had no hesitation in extending the Irishman's deal.

The 20-year-old defender has proved to be a solid performer for Gary Rowett's side having been a virtual ever-present at right-back with 32 appearances in all competitions to date.
