KEITH CURLE - 'OUR FOCUS IS ON THE GAME, NOT THE OCCASION'

The Cobblers boss looks ahead to Monday's play off final

27 June 2020

Cobblers boss Keith Curle says the spirit in the squad is good as they prepare for Monday's play off final with Exeter City at Wembley.

"The spirit is first class," he said.

"Within that there is a focus and a desire to get the job done. The players enjoy their time together but when we get on the training pitch it is work mode on and we do that well.

"The first job on Monday is to make sure the players have clear heads. There is a game of football to be played and we all have our jobs to do and our responsibilities. That is something we instil in the players, if we want to be successful we have to do the fundamentals well and that is what we work really hard on.

"A lot of hard work has gone into the season from everyone. The players and coaching staff are the focal point but we are very appreciative of the support the club gives us, allowing us the platform to go and do our jobs.

"We have had two good games against Exeter this season and it will be tough again on Monday. We know they are a good team and like most teams, they have strengths and weaknesses. We will pay them every respect as they deserve but we will be looking to do all we can to get the right result on Monday.

"No matter how many times you have been to Wembley it is a special place to play. We will go there and embrace things after the game, but we will be going there to win a game of football.

"Everybody understands we want our supporters with us. That won't be possible on Monday, but they will be with us in spirit, we know that."
