Cobblers boss could make changes for Wolves clash

Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd is looking forward to Thursday night’s Capital One Cup second round tie against Wolves.

“We’re all looking forward to it and it’s another chance to test ourselves against a team from two divisions higher,” he said.

“We were delighted to get through against Cardiff and it’s a good draw for us.

“The fact that it’s on Sky adds a little bit of extra spice and it allows us to put some money back into the coffers.

“It is going to be a big test for us, we know that, but we have to look at it at it as just another game and a game that we have to prepare properly for.

“Wolves are a big Championship club who were in the Premier League last season but the main thing for us is that we don’t focus too much on the opposition and get overawed.

“We were very good against Cardiff and it seems to be without putting a curse on it that we’re quite good under lights.

“The players had a couple of days off after Saturday to recover and recharge for the games we’ve got coming up.

“We’ve got different ways of recovering and on Friday morning before we head off down to Plymouth the players will go for cryotherapy. That will be something new and different for the players.

“I might freshen it up a little bit on Thursday night and I might not. There are a lot of different things to consider but it might be time for some of the players who have been on the bench to get their chance.

“I think we’ve got a nice squad and probably the only two players that would be available to move before the window closes are Paul Turnbull and Jake Robinson and they will both be able to leave if the deal is right.

“Nana has had some minor complications and he is probably still another month away. The main thing is that we get him fit and we get him right and if it takes longer than a month then so be it.

“I’ve been there myself with a long-term injury and it can get to you but what it certainly does is make you tougher in the long run and I’m sure despite this setback he’ll be better for it.”
