Aidy Boothroyd has hit the ground running in his moves to reshape the Cobblers squad

With Football League status secured by Saturday's goalless draw against Hereford attention has already turned to who Boothroyd will bring in over the summer to ensure that another relegation battle does not occur.

Having been promised a 'top-six' budget by chairman David Cardoza, Boothroyd is set to make changes in order to build on the progress made during his short time in charge.

“At the beginning of the season we were conceding late goals and even in mid-season we were doing that, the Swindon game being a good example,” Ben Tozer told the Chronicle & Echo as he looks to play his way into the manager's thinking in the final two games of the season.

“We handle games better now and we’re getting late goals ourselves.

“I think that’s because we’re stronger as a team."
