MIXED FEELINGS FOR JON BRADY

The views of the Cobblers boss

5 August 2023

Jon Brady had mixed feelings as he reflected on the narrow opening day defeat to Stevenage.

“In the first half I thought we were excellent and we should have put those chances away,” he said.

“We hit the woodwork twice and we had some really good entries into their box.

“We should have been one or 2-0 up at half-time but at this level you have to take your chances.

“In the second half we weren’t great on the ball and we needed to make better decisions and show a lot more composure.

“I am still having to manage certain players and I’ve had to take my captain off today because of that. You don’t want to go into a season like this but it’s the situation we’re in.

“I didn’t really want to make any changes at half-time but Akin Odimayo had to come off.

“We will get fitter and stronger but with these extra minutes it is really going to test a lot of teams.

“With multi-ball as well I think we have gone to too much of an extreme today but we are just going to have to see how it all plays out.

“We feel a bit harshly done by today but that doesn’t take away from the fact that in the second half we needed to be better on the ball.”
