SCOTT LOACH has returned from his three-game loan spell at Morecombe.

The 19-year-old keeper, third choice at Vicarage Road, was allowed to return to the Hornets after Morecambe secured the signing of Shwan Jalal until the end of the season.

Loach spent three months on loan at Stafford Rangers earlier in the season and also impressed at Leeds United last term.

"Scott did really well for me and is a good keeper," said Sammy McIlroy. "He had a great game at Macclesfield and did well against Bury in midweek for me as well.

"Watford were really helpful in letting us have him and I would like to thank them for their support."

Watford are also understood to be considering helping out Swindon by loaning them one of their many strikers.

Will Hoskins, Moses Ashikodi and Steve Kabba are all way down the pecking order at Vicarage Road and could be sent to the County Ground to help out the Robins and get some match practice under their belt.
