Gary Johnson is looking to add ‘one or two’ players to his squad after his side's 3-1 defeat to Macclesfield on Saturday.

The Northampton manager believes his team is too inconsistent after gaining just nine points in as many games so far this term.

“People will think after a good result that we should have gone on and got another good result, but we seem to have an inconsistent group at the moment who look very good one week and then the next week they look poor,” Johnson said.

“I’ve got to address that and some of the players have got to look in the mirror and ask themselves if they’ve done enough to win this game.

“If you give the ball away as much as we did, then they’re going to be dangerous.”


Johnson was forced to include 19-year-old Greg Kaziboni, who only turned professional this year, and 18-year-old Lumbardh Salihu on the bench at the Moss Rose after a string of injuries to his side, and is now looking to take advantage of the emergency loan window and bolster his squad.

“I’ve spoken to the chairman and he’s been supportive every time I’ve been to see him; I’m pretty sure we’ll see one or two new faces this week,” the Cobblers boss added.

“The problems aren’t off the pitch, off the pitch we’re all working very hard to make sure we’re productive and the chairman is leading that.

“We’ve already had that discussion and we’ll wait until something comes off but there should be one or two of them in this week.”
