DES Lyttle bid farewell to Derby County keeper James Severn this week.

The teenage keeper has been recalled by the Rams with another loan shot stopper – Ross Atkins – now returning to The Lamb for his second stint this season.

Lyttle said: "James has been very good since he came in and I have told Nigel Clough and Gary Crosby that.

"He's produced some fine saves in games and we wish him well on his return to Derby.

"They have been good enough to allow us to take Ross back for a month, which is a relief and it's good that he knows the players.

"We are grateful to Derby and it has certainly eased that headache for the time being.

"But I think, whoever is given the full-time manager's job, needs to bring in a permanent, specialist keeper when the transfer window opens.

"You can't have a scenario where you are fearing a player being recalled all the time. It puts people on edge."
