The views of the Cobblers boss

Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd previews Tuesday’s FA Cup first round replay at Bradford, the third meeting between these two sides in just three weeks.

“We know each other really well and it’s going to be a really hard game,” he said.

“For both teams the league is the priority but as a manager all you can do is try and win your next game and the FA Cup is a big priority for me because I know what a cup run can do for a club.

“James Hanson and Nahki Wells are a real handful and Matt Duke was terrific in the last game we played against them.

“It will be a massive test for Ben Tozer, we’ve played quite a few different systems over the past few weeks but it’s just a case of getting the best out of what we’ve got and doing what we have to do to get results.

“This period has certainly been a test for me and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

“Bayo was buzzing on Saturday night and the goals he scored were terrific. They were real goalscorer’s goals and he is on great form at the minute.

“He’s just got to keep pushing himself and we’ve just got to make sure that we keep giving him the right ammunition.

“In the last two or three games we’ve got a lot more crosses into the box and I also think that the presence of Clive Platt is a big plus as well.”
