Lee Nicholls: Has shone during a loan spell at Northampton

The 20-year-old goalkeeper is held in high regard at the DW Stadium but other, more experienced, options are currently favoured by boss Roberto Martinez.

That has allowed Nicholls to go in search of game time elsewhere, and he has excelled during a stint in League Two.

The youngster has kept 15 clean sheets during his time with the Cobblers, helping to fire them into automatic promotion contention.

Nicholls will be looking to end the season on a high by helping Northampton into League One, and Boothroyd hopes the England U20 international will then return to the club for the 2013/14 campaign.

He said: "Wigan are happy with Lee's development and I have to say I'm absolutely delighted with how he's done.

"He is getting better and better and we'd love to have him for another year."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
