Cobblers boss calls on players to cement their spot in the team

19 July 2021

Jon Brady has said there is still plenty of work to be done ahead as he looked ahead to Tuesday night’s pre-season fixture against Nottingham Forest at Sixfields.

“We are nowhere near the finished article,” he said.

“There has been a lot of chopping and changing to give us a look at everyone but things will be starting to be trimmed down a little bit now.

“We are still looking at the whole squad and the balance of it, there are still a few things for us to consider and as we move closer to that first game we will start to fix down more of a starting eleven.

“We are getting closer to that but it’s down to each player individually to ensure that their performance is top notch and they are not leaving themselves open to be left out.

“It’s down to the players to cement down a spot and I expect to see that from all of them over the next ten days.

“Nottingham Forest will be a different type of test for us again and there will probably be a lot of work for us out of possession. You would expect them to dominate the ball and it’s how we deal with that and then play on top of that.”
