Boothroyd aims to restore fans' optimism
Northampton have no new problems for the visit of Bradford.
Neal Kitson is set to continue in goal but changes could be in the offing elsewhere as the Cobblers look for the victory that would all but guarantee their Football League survival. Defenders Byron Webster and Blair Adams, midfielder Toni Silva and attackers Lewis Young, Jake Robinson and Lewis Wilson will hope to come into manager Aidy Boothroyd's thinking. Despite survival being almost assured, Boothroyd does not want his side to take their foot off the gas in the remaining five matches. "This is a big week for us and it's important that we start it off with a good result at home against Bradford on Saturday. We want to finish strongly and I think that it's important that we start thinking about next season already," said Boothroyd. "It is very easy to down tools psychologically once you have reached a certain target so it's important we stay as competitive and as strong as we can. We're not safe yet but we know we're going to be. We want to put as many points on the board as possible. We want to give the supporters some optimism going into the summer, I think that is something that has been missing here for a while and it's important we have that."
