The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Pippa Field

RYAN Wat­son says he’s back to fin­ish what he started af­ter join­ing Northamp­ton on loan from Le­ices­ter for a sec­ond time.

The 22-year-old made five ap­pear­ances for the Cob­blers at the start of last sea­son, but a cru­ci­ate knee lig­a­ment in­jury put paid to his time at Six­fields.

But, fit again, the midfielder is back with Northamp­ton un­til Jan­uary 3 and hopes to hit the ground run­ning.

“I am look­ing for­ward to get­ting some games and get go­ing again,” said Wat­son.

“I’ve been re­cov­er­ing from my in­jury and I was ob­vi­ously ex­cited to come back.

“I loved it last time, it was a good ex­pe­ri­ence. Things didn’t end well with the in­jury but I am happy to be back.

“It’s what I need, to build my con­fi­dence back and I missed a lot of football.

“Get­ting league games now, from my point of view, is what I need and I can’t wait.”

Man­ager Chris Wilder, mean­while, is the latest to take out his frus­tra­tions on the poor old fix­ture com­puter.

He said:“It seems ridicu­lous to me that we have pre-sea­son and then go straight into eight games in 24 days, or nine games in 27 days.

“It is ridicu­lous, but we will try and get over those games with the play­ers and we have to move on quickly.”

EA­GER: Ryan Wat­son
