Striker Sam Hoskins has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with League Two leaders Northampton Town.

The 23-year-old former Southampton and Yeovil player has scored seven goals in 31 matches in all competitions for Chris Wilder's side so far this season.

Hoskins' new deal comes after the Cobblers also tied Lawson D'Ath and Rod McDonald to longer-term deals.

"We are pleased to get a number of out-of-contract players tied up early," said Wilder.

"It is a show of commitment and faith both ways from the club to the player and vice versa and this is more good news for the club."
