Marlon Jackson returns to Bristol City after McInnes appointment

On-loan Northampton striker Marlon Jackson has returned to Bristol City following Derek McInnes’ appointment as manager yesterday.

The 20-year-old had been at Sixfields since September 13th on a youth loan but with a new regime in place at Ashton Gate it’s not yet known if he will take a more prominent role in first-team affairs.

Jackson netted once in six appearances during his time at the League Two side in a 3-1 defeat to Macclesfield and manager Gary Johnson told the club’s official website his departure was a mutual decision: “It has been mutually agreed for Marlon to go back to Bristol City.

“With a new manager coming in soon it is probably better for Marlon to be there before the new man is in place. He is a young player with potential but there are things that he knows he has to work on.”

Northampton currently sit in 17th place and with Adebayo Akinfenwa still nursing a jaw injury the door is open for fellow striker Jake Robinson to try and make his mark after failing to notch in his first 12 league appearances for the Cobblers.
