They Will Go Right To The End And Compete

They Will Go Right To The End And Compete

Chris Wilder's reign as Northampton boss was finally able to start at the weekend, after the weather had denied him this opportunity previously.

This started with Northampton having to settle for a point against Cheltenham in the 1-1 draw at Whaddon Road on Saturday.

It couldn't have been a worse start for Northampton, as they were quickly behind but Wilder was happy with the way his side got back into the game and ensured they went away with a point.

The Cobblers boss said: 'I am looking forward to the rest of the season. There are still a lot of points to be played for, we weren't going to get relegated today nor safe, but it is a start and one that we can be happy with.

'We couldn't have got off to a worse start, but I thought that the players showed tremendous character in tough conditions.

'We will be better, we will be better in terms of our team play and our quality, but there is something to work with, the attitude and commitment was first class.

'One thing that you will see from my teams is that they will go right to the end and compete.

'They have done that here, they won't fold, things may go against us, but we will give it a right go between now and the end of the season.'


A horrendous error from Matt Duke allowed veteran Jamie Cureton to score in the opening minute but Matty Blair equalised late in the second half to give Northampton a point and something to build on.

With it a bit of a whirlwind leading into the game Wilder will now be happy to have a full weeks worth of training with the players, including many new ones he brought in before the transfer deadline.
