He is highly thought of at the Proact and signed a professional two and a half year deal in November 2012.

Broadhead will have the opportunity to impress at the Gladiators who are experiencing a mini-injury crisis.

Defensive duo David Haggerty and Micky Harcourt are likely to be out for some time at the Autoworld Arena.

Mark Atkins’ Matlock travel to Evo-Stik Northern Premier giants FC United of Manchester on Saturday.
