Northampton Town manager Chris Wilder is looking for a strong finish from his players as they look to secure the League Two title, according to the Northampton Herald & Post.
It has been an incredible season for the Cobblers, who escaped liquidation several times and faced debts of over £10m before being taken over by current owner Kelvin Thomas in November.
However, despite the fact that promotion was clinched with a 2-2 draw against Bristol Rovers last Saturday, Wilder has encouraged his team to look towards lifting the title.
Wilder, who has recently been linked with the managerial role at Bolton Wanderers, said: “We’re back to work and we are really focused on having a big finish.”
“We want that championship, no doubt about that. Those players and myself and the staff have got their sights firmly set on winning the division and being the best team in the division.”
“I’m sure we will do it and we’ve got difficult games and the other teams have got difficult games if they want to catch us. I’m sure when we will do it, the next focus will be to finish the season on a high.”
Wilder’s side need simply to better Oxford United’s result against Luton when they face Exeter this weekend to lift their first league title since 1986/87.
Their draw last weekend increased their unbeaten run to 19 league games, leaving them in 1st place in League Two on 88 points, 12 points ahead of 2nd placed Oxford.
