Matty Blair has joined Northampton Town on a one month loan deal.

The Fleetwod midfielder has been limited to 19 appearances since arriving at Highbury from York City in the summer.

Over half those appearances were from the bench and Blair has joined Northampton’s relegation battle.

He was set to make his debut against York City on Saturday afternoon.

Andy King is currently in charge at Sixfields following Aidy Boothroyd’s dismissal just before Christmas.

Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander said Blair’s loan was to get playing time.

He said: “Matty has gone to Northampton to gain match fitness.

“There haven’t been enough opportunities available to him at Highbury and I’m sure he will make the most of this challenge.”
