Chris Powell moved into the loan market again today to sign versatile right-sided midfielder, Darel Russell until January. This is a smart move with Johnnie Jackson being sidelined for a couple of months.
Russell is another of those one-time Charlton targets who we have gone back for. He is a very solid and experienced pro who I believe we can rely upon to come into the side and make an immediate impact. He always impressed me when playing against us for Norwich and he's an East End boy, so will hopefully feel quickly at home - certainly more so than his present club, Preston North End.
From a squad perspective, it's also perfect timing with the crunch Huddersfield Town fixture for days away. He's a player I could imagine scoring or setting up a goal on his debut as a late substitute.
