Mark Robins is hopeful of extending Huddersfield Town centre-back Murray Wallace’s loan at Scunthorpe United.
The 22-year-old Scot scored for the Iron in Saturday’s 2-1 League I defeat at Rochdale.
His initial stay ends after Saturday’s game at Southend United, where he is in line for a sixth appearance.
But former Town manager Robins, whose side are 21st, has hinted he is keen to keep the former Falkirk player at Glanford Park.
Wallace said: “I’m loving it here, because I’m playing. It’s a good group of lads who have made me feel welcome.”
Elsewhere in League I, Town striker Jordy Hiwula made his first start and fourth appearance for Wigan as they beat Fleetwood Town 2-1 at the DW Stadium.
The 21-year-old former Manchester City player, who is on a season-long loan, has scored once so far.
Hiwula’s fellow Town striker Liam Coogans made his loan debut for Queen of the South as a substitute in their 2-2 home draw with Greenock Morton.
Teenage Town midfielder Ben Holmes was an unused substitute as AFC Fylde won 3-0 at Boston United in the National League North.
His initial stay takes in to more games, at home to Stockport County on Saturday and Radcliffe Borough in the Lancashire FA Trophy on Tuesday.
Town goalkeeper Sam Guthrie made his loan debut for Clitheroe as they were beaten 2-1 at home to Ossett Town in the Northern Premier League Division I North.
The 19-year-old’s stay runs until October 17.
