Matt Jansen has bolstered his back-line after capturing Fleetwood Town left back Max Cartwright on loan.

Cartwright has joined on an initial one-month loan deal and he will go straight into the squad for Friday’s FA Cup fourth qualifying round fixture against Northwich Victoria.

The 19-year-old is no stranger to the Victory Park faithful having spent time on loan back in the 2013/14 season.

He played a pivotal role in the Magpies’ promotion the National League North from the Evo-Stik League Premier Division.

Featuring on nine occasions, Cartwright bagged four goals after joining the Magpies on the non-league transfer deadline day.

Cartwright is yet to make his first team debut for the Cod Army but he has been on the bench this season.
