The 31-year-old striker posted a Twitter message responding to Cobblers fans saying: " “I have to say I’m feeling the luv from all the #ntfc fans truss me it means a lot. Whatever happens have faith the team will survive #BMO.

“Come back Bayo and help us survive this season." was one posting made by a supporter.
