Cobblers captain Charlie Goode says not knowing when it may be safe for football to return is making planning difficult.
“I’m sure we will have a mini pre-season but we have just got to be patient and wait until we hear anything officially from the EFL about whether we can play and if we can, when and how that might be," he said.
“As a player one of the best parts of football is playing in front of a crowd but if we have to finish the season behind closed doors then that’s what we have to do.
“It’s not going to be great for clubs financially but if it means we can finish the season with a possible promotion on the line then behind closed doors it will have to be.
“We’ve worked really hard this season to get ourselves into the position we are in and we want to finish the job off.
“The staff have been great and they have been in contact with us most days, I spoke to the Gaffer the other day and it is important to have that contact.
“We are a really close group, everyone gets on really well, players and staff and we have built some really close bonds and friendships.
“We are all still in contact in a group chat but we are just really looking forward to getting everyone back together.
“It is tough and it is a difficult situation but I’m sure whenever it is we are back we will be ready.
“The fans have been brilliant for us all season home and away and it’s been nice doing the video messages.
“I’m sure the fans are missing football as much as we are, we are very thankful for their support this season and while we are off and not training we just wanted to say to them how thankful we are for their support.”
