Interim boss deflated and downbeat after Blackpool defeat
An emotional Jon Brady has just given his reaction after Cobblers’ relegation was confirmed. It’ll be on the site soon....
FT: 0-3. Cobblers are relegated to League Two.
86: Goal Blackpool. Yates makes it 3-0.
84: Mitchell saves from Simms. Just going through the motions now.
75: Goal Blackpool. Jerry Yates makes it 2-0. Mitchell mistake. That’ll be that. Cobblers are going down.
73: Here comes Chukwuemeka. Marshall also coming on. Miller and Watson off.
67: Very harsh booking for Edmondson. Surprised we haven’t seen Chukwuemeka yet. Surely can’t be long. Cobblers need something to happen....
60: Good save by Mitchell, at full stretch to keep out Dougall’s low effort. Blackpool pretty comfortable at the moment.
50: Harriman heads off the line from Ballard before Embleton has a shot deflect wide. Good spell this for the visitors.
49: Horsfall gets in a vital last-ditch tackle on Simms at the other end. Think this could be an open half.
48: Cobblers on the front foot in these early stages of the second-half. Good surging run by Kioso before the ball breaks for Hoskins, but he balloons well over.
46: Cobblers now 4-4-2. Brady going for it. He has to. Nothing to lose now.
45: Back underway
Two changes for Cobblers at half-time. Edmondson and Rose replace Jones and McWilliams.
