SCUNTHORPE United boss Mark Robins has given his permission for defender David Mirfin to remain with Hartlepool United.

Mirfin has started every game under Ronnie Moore since joining Pools from League One Scunthorpe on Deadline Day.

Scunthorpe have been keeping an eye on his progress at Pools and Robins his happy for him to stay - with an instant recall option.

When asked about Mirfin’s future after the Iron’s 2-2 draw with Fleetwood Town, boss Mark Robins told the Scunthorpe Telegraph: “We have spoken to David and we will let him stay with Hartlepool.

“He is keen to keep playing and at this moment in time it is important that he keeps playing games, although we will have an instant recall on him.

“After his injury it was important that he got himself into a routine and rhythm again.”

We have spoken to David and we will let him stay with Hartlepool.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat to Dagenham & Redbridge boss Ronnie Moore said he hoped to secure Mirfin until the end of the season and admitted he thought his loan was up after the Wimbledon win.

Moore told SportMail last week that his one-month loan deal expired after the Dons game on Saturday.

But Mirfin started against Dagenham & Redbridge last night after club officials confirmed his loan did indeed include the trip to Victoria Road.

When asked to clear up the confusion, Moore said: “That was my mistake.

“I honestly thought he was done on Saturday, so I got that wrong.

“It obviously included last night as well.

“Everything looks to be going ahead with that and hopefully we can get him done and sorted for the rest of the season now.”
