Fleetwood have completed the loan signing of Barnsley defender Rob Edwards.

The 29-year-old defender will move to the Highbury Stadium for a month to gain match fitness following a niggling injury.

Edwards moved across the Pennines from Bloomfield Road last July but the ex-Wolves man is yet to add to 17 appearances for the Tykes this season.

Fleetwood boss Micky Mellon's hand was forced following an injury to skipper Steve McNulty and Ashley Eastham's decision not to extend his loan with the Cod Army.
