Jon Brady has been praising Sam Hoskins after the long serving Hoskins picked up the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month award for August.
"Sam has been in terrific form, both at the end of last season and the start of this," he said
"The really great thing is that what matters most to Sam is the team. His attitude is to work hard for the team and that is way more important to him than any personal glory. That is what makes him such a top person, a top player and a key part of our leadership group here."
The Cobblers boss also provided a fitness update on some members of his squad.
“We’ve still got players who are touch and go for Tuesday night," he said.
“Timing is everything and as I’ve said before we can’t rush players back and risk getting more long-term injuries.
"We hope to have some players back this week but we will not take any risks."
