Striker Azeez has been borrowed from Charlton and his first month stay ends this week while defender O'Connor has another week remaining on his loan from Blackburn.

The pair have both impressed manager Alan Knill, who is pleased he will be able to keep the pair.

"Ade has given us something extra during the time he's been with us and he's learning all the time," Knill told the Western Morning News.

"I've already spoken to Charlton and Blackburn, and they're happy for both players to stay."
