The views of the Cobblers boss

26 October 2023

Jon Brady previews Saturday’s trip to Bristol Rovers and said he is looking forward to the contest.

“Bristol Rovers got promoted back in 2021/22 and in a way we are grateful for what happened that season because it has made us so much stronger as a club,” he said.

“It’s the first time we’ve met since then and it should be a good contest.

“I feel we are better equipped to tackle this league now then maybe we would have been last season and what happened that day has made us a lot more resilient.

“After what happened that day, to do what we did last season shows tremendous strength of character and it has pulled everyone at the football club closer together."

Brady has also been speaking about the part the fans can play on Saturday as well as looking back on the 2-2 draw with Leyton Orient in midweek.

“I’ve spoken about the part our supporters can play and the edge they can give us away from home, they sing from start to finish and they must go home hoarse.

“I felt we could have held out on Tuesday night but overall 2-2 was probably a fair result and we have got to take the point as a positive.

“We fought hard to hold on at 2-1, the work rate was fantastic but maybe our organisation could have been a bit better.”
