Northampton Town manager Chris Wilder is looking forward to leading his side in League 1 next season and is uninterested by speculation linking him to the Bolton Wanderers managerial vacancy according to The Bolton News.

The 48 year old has worked miracles at Sixfields, lifting the League 2 title after a rollercoaster season which has seen financial turmoil surround the club prior to a recent takeover. Sources close to The Cobblers boss have suggested that Wilder has no interest in the Bolton Wanderers job.

Wilder was said to be one of Bolton Wanderers’ main targets for the manager’s job at The Macron Stadium as the relegated club seek an immediate return to the Championship. Wanderers have suffered a miserable season themselves with the Lancashire club earning the unwanted tag of the Football League’s crisis club with spiralling debts and a threat of liquidation hanging over the club.

The Trotters were finally taken over by the Sports Shield consortium last month and the new owners made the swift decision to sack former boss Neil Lennon. Along with Chris Wilder, former Wanderers pair Phil Brown and Kevin Nolan have also been linked with the vacancy.

Nolan was relieved of his managerial duties at League 2 club Leyton Orient last week while Brown continues to do an excellent job at Southend United after guiding the club to promotion last season through the League 2 Play Offs.

Bolton Wanderers have been relegated to League 1 after winning just four league matches all season.
