The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

NORTHAMP­TON boss Aidy Boothroyd be­lieves new loan sign­ing Ja­cob Blyth will be a big hit at Six­fields.

The 20-year-old has signed for a month from Le­ices­ter af­ter mak­ing his name in Non-League with Leamington, who he scored 17 goals for last sea­son.

He moved to the Foxes and then scored six goals in 11 goals for their un­der21s.

Boothroyd said:“He’s got a ter­rific record in Non­League for scor­ing goals. He’s a big, strong and mo­bile guy.

“Whether Clive Platt is strug­gling with in­jury or not, if Ja­cob does as well as I ex­pect him to, I’ll be push­ing to keep him.”
