24 August 2017

Cobblers boss Justin Edinburgh says the squad are looking forward to Saturday’s home local derby against Peterborough United.

“I don’t think there is any better game we could have,” he said.

“I think we have done okay in periods of games so far but football is all about defining moments. There are fine lines between success and failure and we need to win more of the key moments in games..

“I have the utmost belief in this group of players and have every confidence that it’s only a matter of time before results come.

“A lot is made of formations and players when you are not getting results and I understand that. I have been playing the formation that I think best fits the players we have here but if I feel we need to change the system to get a result then I am not too stubborn to do that.

“I do understand the criticism but we need to deal with that. It’s my job to create a good atmosphere around the training ground and I need to make sure that people are not anxious and fearful.

“I know the players and I are relishing Saturday’s game and when we start to capitalise on those defining moments in games then this group will only look forward.

“We need to cut out the silly errors in certain areas and if we can do that then we will turn the corner.

“We’ve had some really good atmospheres since I’ve been here and I’m sure the crowd will play their part again on Saturday. I’m sure the supporters will get right behind us and it’s only a matter of time before the results come with that.”
