Northampton Town forward Jake Robinson hopes a surprise recall to the team will give him the chance to repay the fans for their support.

The 26-year-old scored in the 4-2 win over Accrington, having spent nearly two months on loan at Luton.

He told BBC Radio Northampton: "It's nice to be back and it wasn't really expected three or four days ago.

"The fans have been brilliant, in the most part. I'd like to re-pay them with goals and I got one today."

Robinson scored in his only other appearance for the Cobblers this season against MK Dons, having failed to find the net in 35 previous appearances.

"I could well have had a hat-trick in 30 mins but I'm happy with the one. Two goals in two games is a better ratio than last year," he said.

"Every player goes out every week to show the manager what they can do. Obviously there was slightly added motivation.

"The manager knows where I stand - I want to play regularly, that's why I came in the first place, and if he's willing to give me that chance, I'll show what I can do.

"I'll get ready for Saturday, wherever I'm going to be playing, if I'm needed."
