Northampton Saints star George North says his side won't dwell on last weekend's surprise defeat to Wasps.

The reigning Premiership champions lost for the first time this season at Adams Park, but North is hopeful of putting things right on Sunday at Newcastle Falcons.

"Obviously Gloucester went so well, and when you go down to Wasps, it's a completely different atmosphere and a different game.

But for us, it was a bit of an eye-opener and we'll take that on the chin and work on the next one."

Highly-rated MK Dons midfielder Dele Alli has signed a new and improved contract with the club.

The 18-year-old is widely regarded as one of the brightest talents in the Football League, and has reportedly attracted interest from some of the biggest clubs in the world.

Liverpool and Bayern Munich are thought to be among his admirers, but Alli has committed his immediate future to the Dons.

The youngster's new deal will run until 2017, but manager Karl Robinson admits that it's unlikely Alli will remain at stadium:mk for that long.

"Dele is an exceptionally gifted player and it was only right that we rewarded him for a fantastic 12 months with this new deal.

Dele will continue to be linked with some of the world’s biggest clubs and it’s inevitable that there will be a time when we will have to let him go, whether that be in January, next summer or whenever. "

Hooiveld admits he may have to be patient at Norwich City

Norwich City's new loan signing Jos Hooiveld admits he may have to wait for his chance of a first team start after City's bright start to the Championship.

The Dutch defender moved to Carrow Road from Premier League Southampton before the summer transfer window closed on September 1.

The Canaries defend an unbeaten league run of four games when they visit Cardiff City tomorrow (Saturday September 13). Both were relegated from the Premier League last May.

But Hooiveld isn't surprised that Norwich have started to settle since their opening day defeat at Wolves, and vows to be ready if called upon.

Yes I'm going to try for that. Everybody wants to play football and it's no different from me. The only thing I'm going to do is to work hard every day in training, and see where we end up.

Its going to be tough. The boys have been doing well, the last four games they've been unbeaten. ten points out of five games is not a bad start.

Its not going to be an easy thing. It's something you've got to work hard for. But I've never been shy of a challenge
