JON BRADY PRAISES STRENGTH OF OPPOSITION AS HE REFLECTS ON SWANSEA CITY TIE

The thoughts of the Cobblers boss

8 August 2023

Jon Brady praised the strength of the opposition as he reflected on Tuesday's Carabao Cup defeat away to a very strong Swansea City side.

"We were playing a high level Championship side who only made four changes from the weekend and we had to make seven as we work to get players fit," he said.

"We had a couple of chances in the first half but they are a really strong side and it was a tough night for us at times, coming up against such a good side.

"We had our moments, the changes we had to make and the stage we are at only made things more difficult but we got minutes in to some players and we are working through that at the moment.

"We had twelve of our eighteen aged 24 or under and that is really positive and encouraging. We had a number of former academy players involved and they will have benefitted from this type of game tonight.

"We are seeing patterns of play form and that was good against a side who are very good out of possession and it was good to test ourselves but there is lots to work on and sharpen up on.

"I thought Max Thompson did well and looked very assured. He can be pleased with his performance on his debut.

"We move on to Saturday now, we had some players get through some minutes tonight and that was important. We'll settle down and see how we are for the game this weekend."
