Steve Burr has made two additions to his Chester FC squad as he looks to arrest a run of three straight league defeats.

Towering goalkeeper Aaron Chapman and defender Matty Brown have joined the Blues on initial one month loans from League Two side Chesterfield.

Burr has admitted to being concerned over his side's penchant to concede soft goals and the signings will be seen as a response to the nine goals conceded in the last three games.

With captain George Horan struggling with an ankle injury and keeper John Danby having a dip in form, both players will go straight into the squad for the trip to Aldershot tomorrow (3pm).

Chapman, 23, joined the Spireites in the summer from Evo-Stik League Division One South neighbours Belper Town, initially signing a one-year deal.

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook rates the 6' 8" stopper highly and this week Chapman agreed a new contract keeping him at the Proact Stadium until June 2016.

Chapman had a trial with Norwich City before joining the Spireites and has been training with Premier League side Everton and Championship outfit Bolton Wanderers this season.

He has yet to make his senior debut but has been an unused substitute on 26 occasions.

Centre back Brown penned a one-year deal at the Proact Stadium in July, moving from Evo-Stik League Premier Division side Marine after an impressive trial spell.

Having began his career with Manchester City, the 6' 3" 23-year-old joined Marine from Northwich Victoria in June 2011.

He has scored once in his three appearances for the Spiriters this season and joined Skrill Premier strugglers Southport on loan in October, netting once in four games for the Sandgrounders.
