He is known for his committed style and has pledged that it will be no different for him away from his parent club.
“The Accrington fans can always expect to see 110% effort from me and nothing less,” said Bender.
“I’m never going to shy out of a challenge or anything like that. I’m not saying I’m a dirty player but I don’t mind throwing myself about a bit if it’s got to be done.”
“If I’ve got to put my body on the line to save a goal then I’ll do that and I’m sure that over time the fans will see that.”
