Northampton Town Supporters' Trust worried that loan speculation could affect league form

A member of the Northampton Town Football Club Supporters' Trust says that he's worried that speculation about an unpaid multi-million pound loan could start to affect performances on the pitch.

The Cobblers have been given just three weeks to pay back a £10.25 million loan from the Borough Council who have lost confidence in the club's ability to come up with the funds.

"I think the players and the Management will make every effort to say that it's not affecting them, but I highly doubt that that's the case.

When there's such uncertainty at a club, and nobody really knows what's going on, it's bound to affect them."
