Blyth, 21, arrived at Sixfields on a one-month deal towards the beginning of August and has found the net twice in six appearances during his stay.

That has convinced Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd to keep hold of his services for a maximum three-month period.

"Jacob has had a good month with us and I'm really pleased we've managed to extend his loan," Boothroyd told the club's official website.

Blyth will now remain with League Two Northampton until their clash at Plymouth Argyle on November 2.

This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
