Gillingham midfielder Bradley Dack has joined Blue Square Bet Premier side Braintree on a month's loan.
Boss Martin Allen said: "He is a good player. He will score goals but he needs the opportunity to play some regular football.

Dack, 20, scored his first Gills goal in a Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie against Crawley last September.
