Northampton boss Ian Sampson will keep a close eye on Giles Coke when he lines up against them for Sheffield Wednesday.

Former Cobblers midfielder Coke left a sour taste in the mouth when he originally agreed to stay and sign a new deal at Sixfields before leaving to join Motherwell on a free transfer in the summer of 2009.

But Sampson insists he has no hard feelings and said: "I'm not interested in what happened then or the politics of football.

"I wasn't even manager then. He has moved on and so have we.

"But he is a good player without a doubt so he will have to be watched."
