Accrington Stanley have extended the loan deal of Middlesbrough full back Brad Halliday until the end of the season, according to Eurosport.

The 20 year old right back has been a success story at The Crown Ground this season as Stanley continue to defy all odds and challenge for promotion to League 1.

The spotlight has mainly been on Halliday’s fellow team mate Josh Windass throughout the season but the full back has also been a key piece of the jigsaw at the Lancashire club.

Stanley Manager John Coleman has worked wonders on one of League 2’s smallest playing budgets this season with the club sat in 7th place with at least 2 games in hand on all of their promotion rivals currently placed above themselves.

Halliday started the season on loan at Hartlepool United but returned to parent club Middlesbrough following the return from injury of a number of key players at Victoria Park.

The right back joined Stanley on loan in October and has impressed Manager John Coleman enough to earn an extension to his loan deal.

The Redcar born Middlesbrough academy product enjoyed a hugely successful loan spell at York City last season where he made 24 appearances and scored his first professional goal in a 1-1 end of season draw at Portsmouth.
