Boothroyd admits O'Donovan error

Northampton Town boss Aidy Boothroyd has admitted that he should have played Roy O'Donovan more during his time as Coventry City manager.

Speaking to the Northampton Chronicle about O'Donovan who headed the winner for the Cobblers against Torquay United on Friday night, Boothroyd said: “All of our front players are a real handful and Roy is like a wasp, he doesn’t give the defenders a moment’s peace.

“He puts players under pressure and because of that we get ourselves chances. I think he’s brilliant.

“When you’ve been a manager for a period of time you look back on things and I’m pretty sure that I should have played Roy O’Donovan a little bit more all those years ago at Coventry.

“If I’d done that I might have stayed a little bit longer, so that’s a lesson for me. He’s honest, his work rate his outstanding and he’s a good finisher.

“The header he scored on Friday night was a great header.”
