Northampton manager says Notts County have been "badly managed"

Joe Jones

Northampton Town manager Chris Wilder has claimed that Notts County’s poor league position this season is because they have been badly managed throughout the campaign.

More than six thousand Cobblers fans crammed into Sixfields on Saturday in the hope of sealing promotion to League One, but the Magpies – now 20th in the table – fought back from Ricky Holmes' opening strike to lead through Thierry Audel and Jon Stead, with 2-2 the final score.

"I thought we played well," Wilder said. "(Notts) were tough opposition shape-wise and have good players who've been badly managed this year with the likes of Stead, Izale McLeod and Liam Noble.

"They've played at a good level and sometimes when you go away from home against a team who's about to be promoted, you don't want it to be against you."

Where would Notts be had Mark Cooper taken over directly from Ricardo Moniz? Let Pride of Nottingham know your thoughts by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining the conversation.

I do think we would have been better off if we had took Cooper on in the first place, you never know but to a degree I wished third party people would limit their views. I just think his focus should be on 'promotion' for Northampton, it seems like a bandwagon since JF was sacked.

Congrats to Northampton Towns manager Chris Wilder who is the winner of this weeks  "stating the bleeding obvious" contest.
