Marshall delights Cobblers boss

Stuart Gray
Gray saw his side share the points in their League Two opener

Northampton Town manager Stuart Gray was full of praise for new loan signing Ben Marshall following his side's goalless draw at home to Macclesfield.

The 18-year-old winger only joined the Cobblers on a three-month deal from Stoke City on Friday.

"Ben's got fantastic qualities and I'm really grateful to [Stoke manager] Tony Pulis for allowing him to come to us," Gray told BBC Radio Northampton.

"He certainly gets people on the edges of their seats."

Gray added: "And he'll just improve because I don't think he's played a lot of football at Stoke, so he'll get fitter as well.

"It's amazing what a bit of dribbling and cutting inside will do. That's what I've said to all the players - they've got to take a bit more responsibility, both individually and collectively."
