Chesterfield are set to name their physiotherapist Dave Rushbury as their new manager following a successful spell in caretaker charge.

Rushbury, who took over the managerial reins when Nicky Law and Ian Banks joined Bradford City, has been offered an 18-month contract. The Saltergate side's chairman, Ian Yeowart, said: "We feel Dave is in the best position to take the club forward at the present time. We face a real challenge over the next three years while we pay off the creditors, and we believe Rushbury will best be able to successfully manage all aspects of the footballing side."

Grimsby Town have signed two Charlton Athletic players, the defender Andy Todd and the Swedish striker Martin Pringle, on a month's loan.

The Watford striker Marcus Gayle is set for a reunion with his former manager at Wimbledon, Joe Kinnear, at the Third Division promotion-chasers Luton Town.

Kinnear, the Hatters' manager, said: "I would dearly love to bring Gayle here – I think he would be sensational. He has all the attributes you want."
