>With no midweek game this week, it’s a chance to have a breather at last! To say that we’re a little relieved to not be participate in the JPT tonight would usually be a negative comment but it’s nice to take stock tonight rather than worry about another game.
It’s been an odd start – 10 league games in and we’re showing no signs of a genuine promotion challenge from the Cobblers with the Carling Cup exploits hiding a bit of the stuttering start in League Two. Still early doors though and it’s certainly an unpredictable and entertaining league that we’re playing in. Two of this weekend’s games sum up the League Two season so far – Accrington 7-4 Gillingham and Chesterfield 5-5 Crewe were extraordinary games and it’s a shame that this division doesn’t get the coverage it deserves because it’s one of the most open leagues in the country at this point.
The Town players need this rest to regroup and really have a go at Cheltenham this weekend and will no doubt be fresher and have Sammo’s words ringing in their ears about matching their cup form to the league campaign. It’s crucial that we get at least a point from Whaddon Road or else we could get sucked into Bradford territory!
We need to toughen up, get playing our game again and remember that just one win can make all the difference in a league that’s anyone’s for the taking.
