JUSTIN EDINBURGH EXPECTING DIFFERENT TYPE OF TEST AGAINST DERBY

Cobblers boss previews the first home pre-season friendly

25 July 2017

Cobblers boss Justin Edinburgh is looking forward Tuesday night’s pre-season friendly against Championship side Derby County at Sixfields (7.45pm kick off).

“It’ll be a different challenge for the players,” he said.

“We’ve mixed it up with the games we’ve had in pre-season and I think that’s important.

“I’m sure we will see less of the ball on Tuesday night than we have done in previous games but we will be looking to go out there and make an impression.

“Shrewsbury is not too far off and the players know that if an opportunity comes along now they need to grab it.”

Football returned to Sixfields on Tuesday night as the Cobblers welcomed Championship side Derby County for their latest pre-season fixture.

A number of the Cobblers summer signings were named in Justin Edinburgh’s starting eleven, including the two most recent additions, Matt Crooks and Aaron Pierre. Ex-Cobblers Alex Pearce and Ikechi Anya lined up for Derby with Bradley Johnson named on the bench.

Dean Bowditch saw an early low effort saved by Jonathan Mitchell while Derby’s Mason Bennett had a shot turned behind by David Cornell.

Marc Richards put the Cobblers in front on 18 minutes, prodding in Billy Waters cross from close range. Daniel Powell also played a big part in the goal, winning the ball in midfield before playing in Waters.

The Cobblers went close to a second just before half-time, Leon Barnett heading narrowly wide from a Matt Taylor corner.

Regan Poole, Yaser Kasim and Leon Lobjoit all came on for the second half, replacing Aaron Pierre, Matt Crooks and Dean Bowditch.

Derby upped the tempo in search of an equaliser, Curtis Davies heading just wide and Cornell saving at the feet of Marcus Olsson. Rams substitute Tom Huddlestone saw an effort blocked before Richards was replaced for the closing stages by Aaron Phillips.

Clear cut chances were hard to come by and the Cobblers showed good composure to close the game out.
