"Obika's got electric pace and he likes a goal. His goalscoring record for Tottenham reserves and youth team has been unbelievable and that's something we have been missing a little bit."Moving forward this is the route we want to go, getting young, exciting lads and giving them opportunities."It's going to freshen the squad up a little bit. We need numbers, they're the right type of characters and we're looking forward to see how they do for us."And there'll probably be maybe a couple more faces that might come in just to add to the squad again."The pair will join fellow Tottenham graduate Danny Hutchins in the squad for the weekend match against MK Dons and Obika says that has helped the settling in process."It makes it much easier for our first loan and the lads have been great," Obika told BBC Somerset."Hopefully I'll get the nod on Saturday, do well and score a few goals. I'm really looking forward to it. I'd like to get a lot of League One experience and as a young player you need to come to a club like this to gain knowledge of the game and learn your trade."Townsend, who likened himself to Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon, told BBC Somerset: "I'm very excited and hopefully I can come in and get a few games under my belt. As a youngster I think it's essential to play games and get experience."
