Reading defender Michael Hector has extended his loan spell at Cheltenham Town to a second month.
The 20-year-old is fully expected to remain with the League Two club for the rest of the season, having impressed alongside senior centre-back Steve Elliott.
Hector has made seven starts in his first month at Cheltenham.
He said: "Reading have been watching and keeping tabs on me.
I've had positive reports and good feedback so it's all going good.
"It's a big help to me when we play from the back because that's my type of game, and if we carry on doing that right it will help me to play my best football.
"We know we need to crack on now and get as many points as we can and push on up the League."
Elliott is a doubt for Saturday's home match against AFC Wimbledon after picking up a knock in Tuesday night's 1-1 draw at Fleetwood Town.
If the 34-year-old fails to make it, Manchester United loan youngster Luke McCullough will come in alongside Hector.
