‘LUCKY’ WILDER WON’T BE FAZED

The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Joshua Richards

NORTHAMP­TON Town boss Chris Wilder has warned League Two ri­val clubs: you won’t like us when we’re an­gry.

Last week­end Carlisle boss Keith Curle de­scribed Wilder as a “lucky” man­ager and spoke of his sur­prise at see­ing Northamp­ton top of the ta­ble.

But a 4-1 vic­tory for the Cob­blers may well have changed Curle’s opin­ion and Wilder, named man­ager of the month for Fe­bru­ary, says dis­parag­ing com­ments will only spur his team on.

“Peo­ple say silly things at silly times, and I don’t think my team needs wind­ing up any­way, and I wouldn’t want to prod the bear,” he said.

“We have been prod­ded a cou­ple of times, but you just get your head down and go on. I don’t make ridicu­lous com­ments, and I don’t talk about stuff.

“It makes me smile at times when you hear some ridicu­lous things go­ing on, but there it is, that is other peo­ple that talk about it, and it’s not just one man­ager, there are quite a few who do it.

“You then sit back and watch your team go about things in the right way, which is al­ways on the pitch and go­ing and get­ting re­sults.”
