Lowestoft Town will have three on-loan youngsters in their squad when they make the daunting trip to leaders Dulwich Hamlet in the Bostik League Premier Division tomorrow.

Nico Cotton will join fellow Southend player Daniel Humphreys and Cambridge United striker Matty Foy in the travelling party after his second debut for the club was delayed by a registration issue.

The new faces will help cover for the absence of the suspended Jake Reed and Travis Cole, who will both be missing through suspension in London after being sent off in last Saturday’s home defeat against Margate.

Four days later the Blues saw off a Leatherhead side who also lost two players to red cards 3-1 at the Amber Dew Events Stadium to get their season back on track - and the challenge now is build on that result in one the most challenging away games of the season.

“It’s obviously going to be a tough game for us because Dulwich are a really good side and although it’s still early days I fully expect them to be up there challenging at the end of the season,” said manager Dale Brooks.

“But having some new players on board has given us a boost and we have got to concentrate on what we do and not worry too much about the opposition. We need to go out there and put in a good performance and see how the game unfolds.”

Cotton impressed for the Trawlerboys during a stint on loan towards the end of last season and Brooks has brought him bring him back to the club on a short-term loan.

Humphreys is an 18-year-old right-back and arrives at Lowestoft on work experience.

The youngster will act as a direct replacement for the departing Callum White who has moved on due to work committments.
