Cobblers boss boosted by likely third successive sell out
Northampton Town manager Chris Wilder says the prospect of playing in front of another sell out home crowd is a huge incentive for his side.
After sell outs for home fans v Portsmouth and Accrington Stanley, tickets are also in short supply for the visit of Barnet on Saturday and the Cobblers boss says that shows how much backing there is for the club, and how important that is.
"We look like we are set for another full house, which is huge statement," he said.
"The fans will play their part in the team gaining points. We have players who want to get on the ball, and they need confidence that the fans will let them make mistakes trying and we have that confidence and understanding here.
"As a team we will be positive and be on the front foot whenever we can. There will be times when we lose games and when the opposition are better than us, but if the fans stay with us and allow the players to express themselves we will be better for it. If they can keep noise and support high, it will help.
"There will be fans of other clubs who turn on their players, they will get on their backs and act as a negative, but that won't be the case here, our supporters will drive us on to gain valuable points, just as they did on Monday."
