A goalless draw at Hereford on Saturday, together with Macclesfield's defeat at Bradford, means the Cobblers hold an unassailable eight-point advantage over the bottom two clubs with just two games remaining.

Boothroyd, who succeeded Gary Johnson at the end of November, said: "We have survived and that was the brief when I took the job, to make sure we stayed in the league.

"Now it is about building. The players are off (on Monday) but I am in the office and I will be speaking to one or two people and perhaps getting them down to the ground. I will also be speaking to the ones I want to keep and ones that I want to let move on to pastures new and I can start making those decisions now.

"I have managed to speak to a couple of people very early and have put the feelers out, all legally and above board of course, and now it is a case of showing them around the club.

"I would like to go into pre-season with a group of players that are going to be the core of what we do next season."

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
