Nicholls, 19, who had a temporary stint at Town's League Two rivals Accrington last season, will remain at Sixfields until the end of October.

"We needed a keeper who has talent and Football League experience," said boss Aidy Boothroyd.

"He is a good keeper, he did well at this level last season and he knows a bit about League Two.

"He has come here to get games under his belt. We are in a fortunate position as we already have an experienced, quality goalkeeper on our books and he is well on the way to recovery after a nasty injury.

"In addition, in Dean Snedker we have a young goalkeeper of massive potential also on our books and that is fantastic for us. I am sure Lee will come in and do a good job for us."
