Accrington's squad has been bolstered with the additions of defender Kern Miller on a six-month loan deal from Barnsley and former Hamilton goalkeeper Sean Murdoch on a one-year contract.

Miller, 20, has only made one league outing so far in his career and that was against Stanley for Lincoln in 2009.

Murdoch, 24, was released by Hamilton this summer after spells with fellow Scottish clubs Dunfermline and Forfar.

Manager John Coleman told BBC Radio Lancashire: "It gives Kern that chance to play competitive football. Sean has played in the SPL and has enough experience for us.

"Sean possibly has lost his way a little bit. He was one of the bright hopes of Scottish football earlier on in his career and has probably not played as many games as he'd like.

"He showed at Barrow [during a trial] recently he is capable of making some fantastic saves."
