The Cobblers boss on Notts County 1 Northampton Town 2
Cobblers boss Chris Wilder pleaded with Chairman David Cardoza to do the right deal for the club and to do it now as he reflected on Saturday’s 2-1 win at Notts County.
“I’m so proud of the players, the staff and the supporters,” he said.
“I don’t want to talk too much about football but this is another massive three points for the football club.
“The players have been unbelievable over the last four or five months with what they’ve had chucked at them and I’ve kept quiet about a lot of things but there attitude has been unbelievable.
“For us to be in this position in the league is unbelievable and the players and the staff are pulling rabbits out of hats.
“No one is getting paid and it is remarkable how we are keeping things going. How long can we not get paid for? It’s not right and it can’t go on.
“I know there is a deal to be done that will take this club forward, I totally respect the guys in the background who are trying to put something together but that is a rescue package and I know what is the best deal to take this club forward because I’ve seen it.
“That deal is on the table now, we are playing with people’s livelihoods here and that deal has got to be done.
“I know that we can go so far with this football club and I don’t want to undo all the work we’ve done here over the last two years.
“The unity that everybody is showing in backing us is incredible but we can’t wait any longer to get this deal done.
“What’s happened over the last few months is a complete shambles, from different people and different organisations and I just can’t understand what is going off at this football club because it is tearing us all apart.
“We all want to drive this club forward but let’s get this bleeding deal done.”
