INTERVIEW: Our focus is on trying to win the game

Paul Murray ahead of the Northampton away game

11 January 2019

United head to Sixfields on Saturday off the back of an excellent run of form which has seen them pick up 18 points and score 20 goals in their last six games.

Speaking about the game, joint caretaker boss Paul Murray said: “We’ve worked with the lads on what we want to do on Saturday.

“There’ll be a bit of emotion involved with Keith [Curle] being there and I’m sure he’ll want to put one over on us. We’ll prepare properly, as we have all season, and we’ll be going for that seventh victory, if we can get it.”

“I think Keith was pretty well liked by the players and the fans but there is always a bit of added edge when you face a former-manager. He’ll want to get one over on us and we want to continue our run. We’re all just concentrating on going down there and trying to win the game and we’ll see where we go from there.

“We’re looking to keep the momentum going for the whole club because we want to keep people smiling.”

“Northampton are a team that’s been hard to beat,” he continued. “They’ve had four draws, two defeats and a win in the last seven, and obviously they lost in the Checkatrade on Tuesday night.

“It’ll be a good game tactically, but we’ve been scoring freely and playing some good football, and we’ll look to carry that on.

“The interesting thing is that we don’t know what he’ll do. We know they’ve been playing three at the back but he could change it, who knows. We’ll just have to wait and see but we think, with the confidence in the side, we’ll be ready to go and it’s one we’re looking forward to.”
