Mark Cooper calls on Notts County to 'do a Northampton' next season

Joe Jones

Ahead of Notts County’s clash against Northampton Town, manager Mark Cooper has expressed his desire for the Magpies to be in the same position as the Cobblers in a year’s time.

The League Two leaders were going through a turbulent time at the start of the season, with players and staff unpaid for two months by the time they visited Meadow Lane.

Chris Wilder, the Northampton manager, publicly pleaded for David Cardoza to sell the football club to Kelvin Thomas, and a few days later, the deal was done.

There are parallels between the early-season Cobblers and Notts today, the latter having gone through an underwhelming season recently fraught with issues both on the pitch and behind the scenes.

Cooper said: “I will be saying to our players ‘this should be you - you should be in this position’.

“Maybe next year it might be us, where we are potentially one game away from getting promoted, and that is what we have to strive towards to get that success.

“But you have to put in an awful lot of hard work to get where Northampton are.”
