Aidy Boothroyd has confirmed he has no plans to sign any new players to bolster his under-performing Northampton Town squad.
The Cobblers sit second bottom in Sky Bet League Two after losing 3-0 at Mansfield on Saturday and have recorded just one win from their first 10 games of the season, in all competitions.
A key concern is in attack – the team is yet to score away from home and central midfielder Gary Deegan is the only non-striker to have got off the mark so far.
But despite such shortcomings, Boothroyd will not be entering the market to sign an out-of-contract player or someone on loan – the only options available to him until the transfer window opens on January 1.
“It’s not about bringing any other players in, I’m happy with the players that we’ve got,” he said.
“We’re creating a lot of chances so I don’t think we need to bring anyone else in.
“We are conceding sloppy goals and we’re not taking the chances that the team is creating and putting on a plate.
“Confidence is a word that is thrown around a lot but we’ve got to make sure we keep getting in the position to miss these chances.
“Because if we do that then sooner or later, the goals will come.”
