Dartford have signed Scunthorpe United striker Matt Godden on a one-month loan deal.
The 22-year-old's arrival at Princes Park comes just three days after another centre-forward, Adam Birchall, was sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Birchall, on loan with the Skrill Premier club from Gillingham until January 2, limped off 70 minutes into Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Gateshead.
Godden is no stranger to north Kent, having enjoyed two successful loan spells with Dartford's local rivals Ebbsfleet United last season.
He scored three goals in five appearances for the Fleet between November and December 2012 and then returned to Stonebridge Road in March. Godden's second spell with Liam Daish's side brought him two league goals from six outings.
The diminutive forward played three games for Scunthope between those two loan spells and he then turned out five times for The Iron at the end of the 2012/13 campaign.
Godden has made three appearances for Scunthorpe this season, most recently in their goalless draw at Bristol Rovers in League 2 on August 10.
He goes straight into the Darts squad for Tuesday's home game against Salisbury City.
