Cobblers chairman David Cardoza has issued an apology to the club’s supporters for the lack of information coming out of the club regarding the managerial situation.
But the Sixfields owner has said despite the silence that ‘massive amounts’ of work is going on at the club and has pledged to make the right decision to improve the team’s poor league position.
Town are currently rock bottom in Sky Bet League Two and have been without a manager since Aidy Boothroyd was sacked on December 21.
Andy King has taken caretaker charge of the team and is likely to get a fifth game, at Torquay United on Saturday, in which to make his own case for the job.
Cardoza has moved to reassure fans that the search for a new permanent boss is ongoing and that he is working tirelessly to make the right decision for the club.
“The search goes on but we are waiting for one or two situations to unfold,” he said. “Things will become clear in due course.
“The message to the fans is that I’m very sorry that things have been quiet for a few days but there is an awful lot going on behind the scenes.
“I’ve been here 11 years and the supporters might not always agree with my decisions but they know they can trust me - I always deliver.
“I know we’re bottom of the Football League and I’ve got to get this decision right. I want everyone to stick with me and stick with the club through this stage.
“There are massive amounts of work going on and we’re in a waiting pattern, if you like, but we will get it sorted.”
