JON BRADY PRAISES CHARACTER AND MENTALITY AFTER WIN OVER CARLISLE

The thoughts of the Cobblers boss

20 December 2022

Jon Brady was a happy man as he reflected on Tuesday night’s 2-1 home win over Carlisle United.

Goalless at the break, the Cobblers fell behind early in the second half before an immediate response saw the scoreline turned on its head with Sam Sherring and Louis Appere both getting themselves on the scoresheet.

“Carlisle are a very good side and it was a tough game,” he said.

“The 17-day break has been hard for both teams, we were physically strong in the first half and we dominated without really testing their keeper until Sam Hoskins had a shot just before half-time.

“We responded to their goal and to come from behind again shows our character.

“The players showed great mentality, they kept going and found a way to win.

“We did really well to create those chances against a good side, it was a terrific leap from Sam and it was great for Louis to get his goal so soon after missing a chance.

“Our fitness levels stayed strong and this game will stand us in good stead for Boxing Day.

“I’m pleased to get the win tonight but we can’t sit back on it. We are in a real tough run of games against the top teams but we want to face those games head on.”
