Having netted over 100 career goals – most of which have come in the fourth tier – Collins adds even more firepower to the Town frontline, after signing in June 2017 for an undisclosed fee from Crawley Town on a three-year contract.

Since leaving Aston Villa, the 26-year-old pursued a career in the lower leagues, going onto score regularly for the likes of Shrewsbury Town, Swindon Town and the Red Devils.

A season in the Scottish Premiership with Hibernian didn't prove as fruitful as planned in the 2013-14 season, but he has netted 54 goals since his return to England, including 22 last term for Crawley.

The Coventry-born former Republic of Ireland U21 international has won promotion three times from League Two; twice with Shrewsbury and once during his loan at Northampton Town in 2016.
