Tonbridge Angels have signed defender Mitchell Nelson on loan from Welling for a month.
Angels needed a centre-half after releasing Jerrome Sobers last week, while Sonny Miles faces a shoulder operation at the start of December that’s set to sideline him for six to eight weeks.
Boss Steve McKimm said: “Sonny’s got his operation coming up, so we needed cover at centre-half.
“That’s where I see Mitchell’s best position and that’s where he wants to play.
“Time will tell how he does. He’s not been playing at Welling and they made him available for a month.
“If he does well in that time it might be that Welling call him back. We’ll have to see.”
Angels have got their Ryman League Premier Division campaign back on track by taking four points from the last two games. Saturday's 2-0 win at high-flying Needham Market was followed by a 2-2 draw against Merstham on Tuesday night.
Tom Parkinson and Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson are due to return for Angels’ trip to in-form Enfield on Saturday.
That’s followed by Leiston away on Tuesday night, the teams drawing 2-2 in a top-of-the-table clash in the early weeks of the season.
