The views of the Cobblers boss

Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd on Saturday’s 3-0 win against Exeter.

“It’s a good home win against a good Exeter side,” he said.

“I didn’t think we played nearly as well as we can but I think the fact that I’m saying that after we’ve won 3-0 just shows how high our expectations are now.

“We are very pleased but we’ve still got a lot of work to do and I still think there is a lot more to come from us both defensively and offensively.

“It’s important to keep clean sheets and I thought the save from Lee Nicholls at 2-0 just epitomises what Lee is all about.

“That’s our fifth clean sheet now and if we are going to be successful we are going to have to keep a lot more.

“We’ve got a good armoury in terms of scoring goals and I think it’s the defensive side that we still need to be focusing on.

“Emyr Huws did well, he’s here to learn and he is going to be a top player.

“I think with Emyr when we stretch teams because of the pace and power we’ve got he’ll be able to get on the ball in the middle of the park and make us tick.

“I’m a big fan of Kelvin Langmead, he’s a real team player and I’ve made him captain because I think there is still more to come from him.

“With all the players I’m looking to push them all the time to be better as individuals and that will then make us a better team.

“I think we can kick on from here, Barnet will be tough but we’ve just got to keep improving.”
