On deadline day, the Iron secured the extenstion of Bobby Olejnik's loan stay from Peterborough.The goalkeeper, who has been covering in the absence of Sam Slocombe and James Severn, will now be at Glanford Park until January.
He impressed again on Tuesday evening in the 2-0 Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Chesterfield with some stunning saves to keep a clean sheet against the Spireites and he was praised by his manager.
“Bobby’s been great,” Russ Wilcox told The Iron Player.
“He’s been positive around the group and he has great experience with 90 games in the last two seasons.
“He’s a great age and just what we needed because we’re missing the other two (Slocombe and Severn) and he’s filled their boots well.”
Olejnik’s extension was sealed on the final day of the summer transfer window, after playing five times since arriving at the Iron. He made his debut against Fleetwood just hours after signing on from the Posh.
Our fellow Sky Bet League One club have allowed us to utilise the Austrian in cup competitions, although he will be unable to play against his parent club, when we meet on November 1.
“It’s a great signing,” Wilcox added.
“I was worried on Monday that we could lose him because he had a clause which meant they could call him back so they could sell him.
“He’s had some good games with us and people are always looking for good goalkeepers and he fits that bracket. We asked the question and they got back to us later in the day and we’re happy to have him here.”
