Lee Bowyer reckons that Northampton manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink would have dreaded seeing Stephy Mavididi getting ready to come as his side led 3-0 against the Cobblers on Friday afternoon.
The Arsenal-loanee made his return from injury as he was introduced as a substitute during the 4-0 thrashing at Sixfields – his first appearance since suffering a hamstring injury in early February. He came close to scoring on more than one occasion in his cameo.
“It’s not a nice sight, seeing that when it’s 80 minutes gone – he’s one of the quickest players in the league,” said Bowyer.
“There was one time we broke and we had Stephy and Sullay (Kaikai) breaking and it was like two greyhounds in a race – look at how quick they are. We’re very fortunate, we’ve got these types of players at the club., if we can get them right and get them all fit for the remaining eight games, it’s going to be exciting times.”
