Foxes swoop to ease keeper crisis

Leicester City have eased their goalkeeping injury crisis by signing Mark Bunn on a month-long loan deal from Blackburn Rovers.

Foxes boss Nigel Pearson has swooped for the 24-year-old because of injuries to David Martin (rib), Paul Henderson (groin) and Alex Cisak (broken wrist).

Bunn should play against Hartlepool at Victoria Park on Tuesday if he gets clearance from the Football League.

Carl Pentney is the club's only other fit goalkeeper.

And Pearson feels Leicester need to bring in another number one as they continue their promotion push.

"Carl performed well when he came in against Swindon," Pearson told the club's website. "But we need a player with greater experience."

Bunn played 90 games for Northampton before joining Blackburn in August 2008.
