Cobblers boss excited by potential as he prepares for first home game
Cobblers boss Justin Edinburgh previews his first home game in charge, against Coventry City at Sixfields on Saturday.
“I’m looking forward to it and I think I realised the size and potential of this football club when I walked out and saw 3,000 away fans last Saturday,” he said.
“The fans were fantastic, they really stuck with us, the players responded to that and hopefully we can have the same again.
“We need to turn our home form around and we will be looking for a really good performance and a result to go with it.
“Coventry will be a tough team to play against, they are competitive and we have to be mindful of that but we are at home and we need to be positive and we have to deliver.
“There were a lot of basic errors last Saturday and we have got a lot to work on but there were positives as well. The players here are a good group and they are responding well.
“We have got to be harder to play against, be more aggressive in our defending and if anyone is going to get a goal against us we want it to be a good goal.
“We knew there was a challenge when we came in, Saturday wasn’t the start we wanted but there were some positives and we have to look at that.
“We have got to stop the habit of losing football matches and that’s what we are working hard to do."
