The Cobblers caretaker boss looks ahead to Tuesday night

15 February 2021

Cobblers caretaker boss Jon Brady has been looking ahead to Tuesday night’s trip to Ipswich Town.

Brady began by reflecting on Saturday's improved performance against Burton and was keen to focus on the positive changes.

“I’ve watched Saturday’s game back twice, it’s sometimes quite hard to reflect immediately after a game because everything is so raw but looking back there is no doubt we absolutely dominated the opposition in the first half an hour,” he said.

“In my mind the disallowed goal was harsh, I thought Lloyd wasn’t off-side when the ball was played and you are talking millimetres away when Ryan Watson hits the bar.

“If we score the first goal there is no doubt in my mind that we go on and win the game and the first goal is what these players need.

“We are trying to change the mindset but with the limited time we’ve had with them I thought Saturday was a step forward. It might not look like that from the outside because we were sucker punched with the first goal and then for their second it came at a time when we were trying to push on but we created more chances on Saturday than we have done recently and we completed more passes although with that we still need to show more purpose.

“Things don’t happen overnight but we’re not too far away. I believe there was a positive change on Saturday and you will see that again on Tuesday night.

“We are ready to go again and we’ll be taking the game to Ipswich.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity, we’ve got a real focus on what we can do better and one thing I would say is that we’ve been indecisive in important moments and there won’t be any more of that.”
