Aidy Boothroyd will attend his second and third matches of the week today (Tuesday) as he steps up his search for potential new players to bolster his Cobblers squad.
The Town manager took in a game on Monday night and will visit two more after taking first-team training in the morning.
Boothroyd has a couple of names in the frame that he wants to take a closer look at with a view to possibly making a transfer addition before Saturday’s game against Dagenham & Redbridge at Sixfields.
Front-line strikers Clive Platt (calf) and Alex Nicholls (broken leg) and emergency centre-forward Kelvin Langmead (knee) are all out injured.
“All I want is to have a squad to pick from and we’re all working hard behind the scenes to make sure we get that,” said Boothroyd.
“I’ve been to a few games this week, looking at various players and we’ll come through this period eventually.
“There are two or three out there who we think might be able to do a job for us and I’m putting the work in so that they’re there and if we need them we can go and get them.
“We did that with Stuart Dallas, we got him because we knew about him and nobody else did.”
There is some good news on the injury front with reports emerging from Leicester that Jacob Blyth, whose loan at Sixfields was cut short by a thigh strain, is making strong progress.
The 21-year-old is around a fortnight away from resuming first-team training, and could return to Northampton on a temporary deal when fit.
