WINGER Lee Martin is back training with Millwall but is still registered to play for Northampton, where he has been on loan since January.

Martin, 29, last played for the Cobblers against Newport on March 25, the 10th appearance the former Manchester United player made for the League Two club.

Boss Chris Wilder explained the reasons for the move to Northampton Chronicle. “I thought it was the right time for Nicky Adams to come back into the team,” Wilder said.

“I could bring Lee in and drag him down to Exeter, take him down to Yeovil, but I wanted to play Nicky Adams, while Alfie Potter is back fit and Lawson D’Ath is back fit.

“Ricky Holmes is playing well. I wanted to give Sam Hoskins a go too, so we had plenty of options and it was a sensible decision.

“Lee came here and played a part for us, but I thought it was the proper and correct thing to do for Lee, for us, and for Millwall.

“It looks as if Millwall might be in the play-offs as well, and it is better for him to be down there and amongst it as if they do get into the play-offs then he might be needed.”
