Nana Ofori-Twumasi did indeed sign yesterday but wasn’t the only one coming through the Sixfields doors as Gary Johnson got straight to work on bringing in his own players. Another one from Posh, keeper Steve Collis, has been signed on loan until the end of the season while promising Wolves left back Jamie Reckord also comes in.
Collis, formerly of Barnet, Nottingham Forest, Yeovil, Southend, Crewe and Bristol City and provides solid competition for Chris Dunn, something that he could definitely benefit from.
Reckord, who was close to a move to Championship high flyers Swansea City on deadline day, is someone that Johnson has been watching for a long time and is described as “very athletic, strong with power and pace,” by the new Town boss. If Reckord does well, it is thought that a season long deal next season could be in the pipeline.
So Gary Johnson wasting little time then in assessing the squad and with all three of his new men straight into the squad for tonight’s game there could be a real shake up as we prepare to take on the league leaders on their own patch.
