Accrington have been boosted ahead of their season-opener at Northampton after signing Burnley defender Kevin Long on loan.

The Irishman will stay at the Crown Ground until January after enjoying a similar spell with Stanley last season.

"I'm feeling good about being back," he said.

He added: "Obviously with the five subs rule coming into the Football League it's going to be hard to get into the team at Burnley.

"Accy showed an interest and coming back and playing games is good for me."
