Watford defender Reece Brown has joined Carlisle United on loan for a month.

Brown joined the Hornets in the summer on a two-year deal but has been limited to two Capital One Cup starts and one substitute outing in the league. He has been an unused substitute a further three times.

Brown, the younger brother of former England international Wes, did not make an appearance for Manchester United but was with the club from the age of nine until he joined the Golden Boys.

The defender, 22, has Football League experience following loan spells at Ipswich Town, Coventry City, Oldham Athletic, Doncaster Rovers and Bradford City.

He needs games for his own development and also for fitness, a sensible move.

Not good enough and too injury prone.
It looks like he might have been brought in to bolster the English contingent.

He looked off the pace against Bristol rovers, but the again without playing how can you build that sharpness. The writing was on the wall when Unfit Hall was given a contract. If a bloke with only one leg is worth a punt over a fit player on the books you know its time for that player to move elsewhere. Plus the Aussie captain has joined and there is the Tunisian bloke who wants matches too, p Hoban is fit again and Cassetti playing in the back three. We have central defenders all over the place.

Makes me chuckle when people say not good enough !!! As you have seen so much of him haven't you !! Seems we have better players at present and he seems to be able to play in a 442 better than a 352. He is big and strong and we would really need to see him in a run of 5 to 10 games to really know

By the "Aussie captain" I assume you mean Lucas Neill. By "the Tunisian bloke" I assume you mean Essaid Belkalem, then Algerian international?
