Pressure eased on Ian Sampson as Cobblers record some much needed wins

Will Northampton Town's turnaround continue?Things were not looking too good for Northampton Town's manager Ian Sampson as he was at one point looking like being the next League Two manager to join the sackrace, but their 2-0 win away from home last night against league strugglers Lincoln City coupled with the 2-1 win against Gillingham at the weekend has given the manager of the Npower League Two side a bit of breathing space following their 5 previous defeats in the League.

The Cobblers will have a break of almost a week and a half in League as their next league game is not until 13th November when they take on Port Vale at the Sixfields Stadium before that they will hopefully progress past round one of the FA Cup after they take on Forest Green away from home.

Ian Sampson started his career at Northampton Town back in 2006 when he was appointed as the youth team coach and was soon promoted to the role of first team coach. When the then manager of Northampton Town, John Gorman resigned as manager of the side he was appointed as caretaker manager until the rest of the 2007 season. Town then took on Stuart Gray in 2007 as their permanent manager who lasted until 2009 and then Sampson was given the role of caretaker manager for the second time before being appointed full time manager.

Currently Northampton Town are at odds of 12/1 with bookmakers Bet 365 to be relegated from League Two at the end of the season and a massive 80/1 to be crowned League Two champions. On the goal scoring front former Coventry City player Leon McKenzie is at odds of 25/1 to be the leagues top goal scorer.
