Cobblers caretaker manager respects opposition, but won't be changing any plans


Cobblers caretaker boss Andy King says that this Saturday’s home game against York City is a big game for his side.

“It’s a vital game and if the players perform like they have done in the last three games then that’s all I can ask,” he said.

“We’ve done fantastically well in the last three games but we haven’t turned the corner yet.

“We were a little bit unlucky at Burton, at Portsmouth it was a good fighting performance with spirit and it was a fantastic win at Newport.

“In parts of the game we played with quality and then in the second half we had that battling quality which was an even bigger plus for me because we showed real spirit.

“It was a game we had to win and we won it but I enjoyed the way in which we won, the two boys that came in up front did well and the players really stepped up to the plate.

“We needed a win to give us something to build on and now what we need to do is try and make it back to back wins.

“The way we are going has now got to continue and there has got to be no falling back or dropping of standards.

“I’ve had a look at a couple of DVDs of York but I am more concerned about how we are and how we set up for the game.

“I won’t be changing our system to suit York, we will respect them but I’m more concerned with us because that’s how I manage.

“There are a lot of things still building and changing but the most important thing is getting these victories and getting that confidence to win football matches.

“These next two games against York and Torquay are two massive games and that will let us know where we are.

"I'm satisfied to be at the club and to work with the Chairman, and he's letting me bring players in. It's the Chairman's decision, he's got this club at heart and he's got to make a big decision. I'm accepting it. I'm thriving on being manager. 

“I know that the Chairman has got to make a very big decision here.”
