Northampton caretaker manager Tim Flowers fearful of non-league ‘graveyard’

Northampton caretaker manager Tim Flowers insists the club has a lot to do if they are to avoid relegation to the Blue Square Premier.

Flowers’ first game in temporary charge of the Cobblers ended in a 4-1 defeat to bottom-side Plymouth and stretched their run of games without a win to nine in all competitions.

The former Blackburn goalkeeper re-iterated his position is only temporary when he spoke to BBC Radio Northampton and that a long-term replacement faces a huge task on his hands to turn around their ailing fortunes: “I’m looking after this until whoever comes in takes over and I haven’t lied about any of that. Fundamentally, whoever comes into this club has got to keep this club in the league as their first mission.

“The Blue Square Bet Premier is littered with clubs like us who have gone and have never come back, it’s a graveyard for clubs like us. If you go down, it’s a really strong league to get out of these days.”
