OLDHAM Athletic striker Scott Wilson has joined Notts County on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old has made 26 appearances, scoring twice, since joining from Macclesfield last summer.

The Magpies are seventh in the National League and looking for promotion back to the Football League.

"Scott’s been on our radar for a little while and, with another game being postponed and the games coming thick and fast on heavy pitches, we felt like we needed to act quickly to add some fresh legs," said assistant boss Neil Cox said.

"It’s not been a one or two-day thing to get the deal done but we’re absolutely over the moon to have another striker in the building now.

"The owners have done their usual research, which is really good for us, and then everyone put their heads together and decided Scott was who we wanted.

"He can score goals but he's a team player who holds the ball up, runs in behind and isn't too selfish in front of goal.

"On top of that, I’ve spoken to a couple of people who say he’s a really good character who’ll be looking forward to this challenge.”
