Defender Craig Alcock has extended his loan from Sheffield United to Doncaster Rovers until January 2.

Alcock made his temporary switch to the Keepmoat last month in a bid to regain his fitness after suffering an injury in the September clash between the Blades and Rovers.

The 27-year-old has started the last four games for Rovers, operating at both right sided centre half and wing back.

It was expected that his deal would be extended given a lack of first team opportunities with the Blades and Rovers' lack of defensive cover.
