Cobblers boss maintaining focus
Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd is focusing purely on Friday night’s Sixfields clash against Torquay ahead of a busy Easter weekend schedule.
“Easter is a busy period but we’ve just got to keep focusing on the next game and doing all we can to try and win it,” he said.
“If we do that then the league will certainly take care of itself.
“To go second or third now and start celebrating would be like going top in August and thinking you’ve won it and it doesn’t work like that.
“We need to keep focusing on what we have done well and keep anchoring and enhancing that to the players.
“We know that Torquay are a better team now than their league position suggests and with any team in this league if you take them lightly then you will get turned over.
“We’ve got to make sure that we are at our best to get a result from the game.
“I know Martin Ling very well, I’ve spent a lot of time with him on various coaching courses and I hope he gets better soon.
“Saturday was one of those results where belief got us through and you need that because you can’t play well all the time.
“We are still in a position where we are masters of our own destiny and it’s our choice whether we maintain our form or we don’t.
“Providing you don’t brush things under the carpet I think it’s important to remind everybody where we are at, what’s got us this far, what are targets are and what we need to do to improve upon them.
“Nathan Cameron has joined us this week and I think he will prove to be a very good addition to our squad.
“I know Nathan very well, he’s an England under-20 international, I gave him his debut at Coventry and I know what he is all about.
“He’s brave, he’s very, very quick, he’s a strong boy and he is a huge talent.
“I also thought Lee Collins was excellent on Saturday and Clarke is playing some fantastic football at the moment.
“He’s in really good form and with Clarke not only is he a good footballer he is also a strong character and a winner.
“That’s why he has already got three promotions under his belt and hopefully we can get him another one."
