The 31-year-old forward has yet to feature for the Millers this campaign and is looking forward to playing regular first-team football during his spell with the Sky Bet League Two outfit.

Odejayi told the club's official website: "This move could have happened sooner but for whatever reason it didn't.

"I'm here now, raring to go and looking forward to getting started.

"I want to come here, get some games and hopefully score some goals and help the club to improve our league position and get as high up the table as possible."

Stanley boss James Beattie is thrilled to have finally signed the former Barnsley marksman, who he has had his eye on for some time.

"We're delighted to have Kayode in," Beattie said. "This is something I've been working on for two or three months and we were unfortunate not to get him permanently.

"He's trained with us this morning (Tuesday) and he's exactly what we need, what we have been missing and hopefully he'll be the missing link to get us going."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
