KEITH CURLE LOOKING FOR CONSISTENCY AHEAD OF THE BOXING DAY VISIT FROM SWINDON TOWN

The Cobblers boss looks ahead to Boxing Day

24 December 2018

Cobblers boss Keith Curle is challenging his players to show greater consistency ahead of the Boxing Day visit of Swindon Town.

"We are still a bit inconsistent at the moment and we need to make sure we do the simple things right,” he said.

“I think we have a good team spirit and there is a camaraderie in the group but as I said after the game at Yeovil our understanding of roles and responsibilities needs to be better.

“My methods are slightly different and sometimes some players can take a little bit longer to adapt to that."

Curle also provided an update on the fitness of midfielders Matt Crooks and John-Joe O’Toole.

"Matt took a knock in the first half on Saturday and because of the time he’s been out we were a little bit cautious with him. He has a full bill of health though and should be fine for Swindon.

“John-Joe is injured, there is no conspiracy theory there he is just going through his rehab. He’s back out training on the grass and there is a steady progression.

“He has a foot injury and he won’t be free from pain for a while. He will be in discomfort but John-Joe is the sort of player who will play through that.

"He is a key member of the squad and as soon as he’s ready he will be back.”
