Southend United have brought in Swindon midfielder Michael Timlin on loan as cover for the injured Craig Easton.

The 25-year-old will join the Shrimpers for four weeks while Easton, who has been ruled out until mid-October, recovers from a calf injury.

"I am looking forward to it because it is a chance to get some games under my belt," he told the Southend website.

"The main thing is the chance to play regular football and hopefully it will be a good loan spell."

The former Fulham trainee has made 75 appearances for the Robins since signing permanently in 2008 after two loan spells at the County Ground.

He also has eight Republic of Ireland Under-21 caps.

Shrimpers boss Paul Sturrock initially took Timlin to Swindon in 2006 during his period as manager of the club.
