Watford's Bernard Mensah has extended his loan spell at Braintree Town until the end of the season and has been joined by fellow Hornet Alex Jakubiak.

Mensah has made five appearances and scored one goal for Braintree this season after initially joining in January before his loan was extended twice since.

The 19-year-old striker made his first-team debut for Watford in the 1-0 defeat to Bolton Wanderers in November and has impressed during his time at Braintree.

Jakubiak is a second-year Academy scholar and will remain with Alan Devonshire's side until April 13.

Braintree are 17th in the Skrill Premier but could climb the table significantly if they take advantage of the number of games in hand. They have at least five matches in hand of most of the teams above them after poor weather meant they did not play for more than five weeks.
