Rushden and Diamonds have signed Reading goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown on a month's loan.
The 22-year-old arrives at Nene Park with Billy Turley sidelined with a knee problem and recent signing Paul Evans also struggling with injury.
Ashdown has started five senior games for the Royals since coming through the club's youth system.
He has also had a previous loan spell at Bournemouth, which was cut short by injury.
Ashdown goes straight into the Diamonds squad for their visit to Hartlepool.
