Striking A Balance

Getting the build-up right to Saturday's big game could be a key factor as Northampton take on Bradford City

Two weeks separate the League Two play-off semi-finals from the final at Wembley meaning a long wait and a free weekend in between.

While both Aidy Boothroyd and Phil Parkinson will have been at pains to keep things as 'normal' as possible there will be no getting away from the importance of the occasion as the respective clubs gear up for their day at the national stadium.

Bantams boss Parkinson gave his side a long weekend off before coming back into training on Monday and told the Telegraph & Argus: "It’s going to be a big, long build-up for it and we’ve got to keep calm.

"We want to play as well as we can and it’s our job to make sure we’re ready. We will be."
