Defender's loan spell at Town extended

Graham Turner has extended the loan spell of defender Lee Collins for a second month.
 
The Shrewsbury Town manager reached agreement with Barnsley boss Keith Hill who has also given Collins, 24, permission to play in Saturday's FA Cup first round tie at Hereford United.  
 
"The crucial thing was we wanted him to play in the FA Cup," said Graham. "It would have been no good renewing his loan this week if he wasn't allowed to do that.
 
"But Keith Hill, the manager of Barnsley, has allowed him to play in the FA Cup on Saturday so we've re-signed him and it's all gone through."
 
The boss added: "Lee's done okay but I think he can be better. He's not played too many first team games this season so he's been feeling his way into things and he's done all right.
 
"He's teamed up with Darren Jones and they look a decent partnership." 
 
Jeremy Helan and Jamie Proctor have also been granted permission to play for Town in the FA Cup by Manchester City and Swansea City respectively.
