Stockport have extended the loan spell of Hartlepool goalkeeper Anthony Williams for a further two months.
He has already spent a month at Edgeley Park and made four appearances for Sammy McIlroy's side since losing his place in the Hartlepool line-up.
Meanwhile, Williams has apologised to Stockport's fans for a reaction he made to verbal abuse directed at him during Saturday's defeat by Swindon.
"I understand the frustration of the supporters," said the 26-year-old.
"I can assure them that the players are equally frustrated," the former Wales under-21 international added.
"It is never nice to hear derogatory comments about yourself during a game and I did raise my hand towards supporters behind the goal.
"As a professional footballer I should know better. I did not, however, make an obscene gesture and would never contemplate doing so.
"But if anyone took offence at my reaction then I apologise unreservedly," Williams told Stockport's website.
