In the end Chris Wilder’s appointment as Northampton boss wasn’t a surprise, when it eventually happened.

David Cardoza has spoken about the former Oxford boss and his appointment, offering his apologies for the time it took to make the appointment but was more than happy with the appointment made.

The Cobblers chairman said: ‘I am delighted to be able to appoint Chris.

‘I know it has been a frustrating time for our supporters and I apologise for that, but I make no apologies for taking our time and making sure we made the right appointment.

‘We were in the capable hands of Andy King so we took our time, assessed our options and spoke to a lot of people in the game. All the reports we got on Chris were excellent.

‘We were looking for a manager who has the experience required to guide us out of our current position and one who is ambitious and driven enough to take the club forward in the medium term and Chris is the perfect choice.’

Wilder, who signed a three and a half year contract, will be given funds to strengthen the squad before the end of the month with Cardoza also quick to praise Oxford and the way they acted during the approach for Wilder.
