Northampton Town's youth team travelled to Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday for their latest EFL Youth Alliance fixture.
The Cobblers suffered a 2-0 defeat, but there were positives for Academy Manager Trevor Gould.
“It was a tough game in tough conditions,” he said.
“Dagenham are top of the league and we had a younger side out but it was a fairly solid performance.
“We can look to play better but at 1-0 we had some really good chances.”
