TOWN left-back Anthony Lloyd will be seeing out the remainder of his loan spell at Torquay United - and the move could become permanent.
Galpharm manager Peter Jackson has confirmed he will not recall the 21-year-old from the Devon club for the home clash League I with Southend United a week today.
Regular left-back Danny Adams is suspended against the third-placed Essex side after reaching five bookings in Tuesday's 2-2 away draw with MK Dons.
But Jackson, whose team were second going into today's match at basement side Bristol City, will use Tony Carss, Tom Clarke or David Mirfin at left-back instead.
Lloyd, whose sole Town appearance this season came in the LDV Vans Trophy defeat at Boston United, is one of three players out on loan.
Striker Junior Mendes is at Torquay's League II rivals Northampton Town and midfielder Lee Fowler at Conference club Scarborough.
And Jackson says he would be willing to negotiate on a permanent deal in each case.
Lloyd and Mendes came face to face on Tuesday, when Torquay and Northampton drew 3-3 at Plainmoor.
It was the defender's seventh appearance for the Gulls and the frontman's 11th for the Cobblers.
Former Mansfield Town player Mendes's goal took his Northampton tally to three.
Wales Under 21 cap Fowler has played four times for Scarborough, scoring in the 2-0 home win over Halifax Town a fortnight ago.
"Lloydy still has another couple of weeks down at Torquay, while Junior and Lee are away until the middle of January," said Jackson.
"I wouldn't stand in the way if any of the clubs and players concerned wished to make the moves permanent, so we'll have to wait and see."
* Town's League I trip to Scunthorpe United, originally due to be played on Saturday, January 7, when Peter Jackson's side now visit Chelsea in the third round of the FA Cup, has been put back to Tuesday, January 10 (7.45).
