WATFORD youngsters Matty Whichelow and Piero Mingoia have joined Accrington Stanley on loan.
Whichelow will remain in Lancashire until December 18, while Mingoia has signed for an initial month with a view to a longer loan agreement between the clubs.
The attack-minded pair will link-up with the League Two outfit as they look to build upon their impressive start to the campaign, which sees them positioned in the top six.
Whichelow, 20, is an Academy product at Vicarage Road who made his first-team debut in October 2010, he has previously appeared for Exeter and Wycombe Wanderers on loan.
Mingoia, 20, is another homegrown player who will look to gain further experience after a spell on loan with Hayes & Yeading last season – he made his Watford debut in January 2011.
