Jon Brady described himself as 'delighted' to receive confirmation that he will remain in charge of the Cobblers until the end of the current season.

Brady has five points and one win from his six matches so far but can improve that record and keep Town in League One over the next 14 games.

He will remain in charge alongside Ian Sampson and Marc Richards, with his next game coming against Portsmouth this weekend.

"I'm delighted to have the opportunity to try and make a difference to the football club alongside Marc and Ian," said Brady. "We've got 66 days and 14 games ahead of us and we know what the destination needs to be - to maintain our League One status.

"We've got nine teams in the top 11 to play, three teams in the middle of the table and two teams in and around us so we know the challenge will be tough.

"But we're going to roll our sleeves up and work as hard as we can to be the best we can in the moment and deliver League One for this football club next season. That's our ultimate goal."

Brady's first win came on Tuesday when Cobblers beat Plymouth Argyle at the PTS.

He added: "The mood is buoyant and the boys were excellent on Tuesday but it has to be the start of things - it can't be a one-off.

"But great character from all the squad because they showed real resilience after the Swindon game and I'm sure that will help the confidence and belief. I'm sure the fans would have enjoyed it - it would have been great to share it with them."
