>Gary Johnson has hinted that young Cobblers prospects such as Greg Kaziboni and Malachi Farquharson may get a chance to impress in the final weeks of the season. The Town boss has seen glimpses of the future of the club in practice matches and behind closed doors games in the last couple of weeks and could be set to include one or two in the last nine games of the campaign.
Assuming that we don’t get drawn into a relegation battle, it’s a safe bet that the younger lads will get their chance with Johnson looking to get an early look into the possible squad for next season. It’s odd to think that a year ago we didn’t know a lot about Michael Jacobs – kept on by Sammo in place of Alex Dyer in the summer – but his progression has to be the motivation for the young ‘uns to push on.
Meanwhile, Johnson has stated that his shopping spree is over after five new signings since he joined the club. The loan window closes at 5pm this evening and no new activity is expected at Sixfields.
