Luke Nightingale, released from Portsmouth during the summer, has failed to have his short term deal at Southend United renewed.The news is a blow to Nightingale, as the Shrimpers are struggling with injuries and are having trouble scoring in Division Three.

Better news for Rowan Vine, who is on loan at Division Two Colchester United. He netted in the U's 2-2 draw against Queens Park Rangers at the weekend.

Courtney Pitt was ruled out of what may he his last game on loan for Luton Town over the weekend - an archilles heel injury suffered in the win over Hartlepool ruled him out of the game at Notts County at the weekend. Pitt has been a success in his short time at the Bedfordshire Division Two side, the high point being a fine strike in the win over Yeovil in the Carling Cup.
