SUNDERLAND goalkeeper Max Stryjek has had his loan spell at Eastleigh extended until December 22.

Stryjek has kept three clean sheets in five Spitfires appearances, picking up September’s player-of-the-month award along the way.

He is available for selection for Saturday's Vanarama National League trip to FC Halifax Town, having missed the weekend's FA Cup exit against Hampton & Richmond Borough.

The Black Cats did not want the 22-year-old cup-tied.
