The views of the Cobblers boss
Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd reflected on the 3-2 defeat at Plymouth.
"It's a disappointing result but we have to give credit to the opposition," he said.
"I didn't think we looked jaded at all and we are not going to use that as an excuse.
"We did very well in the first half and we could have been further ahead at the break.
"At the start of the second half we were very lacklustre and we gave Plymouth the momentum and for 25 minutes they were on top.
"We created a lot of chances today which is a plus but we conceded three very poor goals and clearly there is work to be done.
"We won't be making any excuses and clearly we were the architects of our own downfall in the second half."
