The views of the Cobblers boss

16 September 2021

Manager Jon Brady wants to see his side build on the midweek win away at Newport County when the Cobblers welcome Swindon Town to Sixfields on Saturday (2pm kick off.)

“It was a really strong performance against Newport and our form has started off quite well away from home," he said.

“Home or away we want to win games, I still don’t feel we will be at our best until ten to twelve games into the season but we are finding ways to win and that is encouraging.

“There are so many variables in football and you have got to be adaptable and flexible which I think we have shown we can be.

“Both full-backs got a lot further forward on Tuesday and we had some good movement with Nicke and Danny up front.

“It’s unfortunate for Millsy but it’s an opportunity for Ali Koiki to nail down a regular place. His performances have been consistent but Michael Harriman is training really well and he is chomping at the bit too and he is in our thoughts.

“Jack Sowerby came into the side on Tuesday night and put in a really intelligent performance, he’s been out injured but he showed with the way he played that he’s been taking on board everything we have been saying and that is really pleasing to see as a manager and coach. Jack and Shaun both got on the ball and it was a good combination.”

The Cobblers boss also provided an update on the injury suffered by Sid Nelson.

"Sid has got an ACL tear and a meniscus tear as well so it's going to be a very long term injury for Sid," he said.

"We'll support him in every way we can on that because it's heartbreaking for him and for Joseph Mills as well."
