JON BRADY CONSIDERING CHANGES FOR CHELSEA EFL TROPHY TIE

The views of the Cobblers boss

25 September 2023

Jon Brady has hinted he may make changes for Tuesday night’s EFL Trophy group fixture against Chelsea U21s at Sixfields, kick off 7pm.

“We want to be competitive in the game but there are players that need minutes,” he said.

“We want to win but ultimately we have to make sure we have enough bodies available for the weekend.

“You want to perform in every game but as I’ve said before our priority is the league. We will respect the competition and fulfil the criteria but that’s all we can do."

Looking back on the defeat to Barnsley Brady said:

“When playing the way we want to play you have to accept that one or two errors may happen but we have to do better in those moments.

“Like I said on Saturday we are being ruthlessly punished at the moment and we have got to make sure we eradicate those errors. If we do that we will take points from games.

“Performances overall in all the games except one have been consistently strong and the one game we weren’t great in we defended brilliantly.

“We are competing but we have to start scoring a lot more goals. We are working with the forward line and the group but it’s important we don’t just rely on Sam. Set pieces have been strong for us in the past and we need to do better there as well.”
