The views of the Cobblers boss

Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd was honest in his assessment of the 2-0 home defeat to York.

“York dealt with the occasion better than we did today and we got what we deserved,” he said.

“We didn’t play the conditions particularly well in the first half and York did. They scored at a key time and it looked like we were almost just trying too hard at times today.

“We chased the game in the second half but we couldn’t get the ball in the net. We are creating chances but we’re not taking them.

“The run we’ve had at home was always going to come to an end sooner or later we would have just preferred if it was in six months time.

“There is a reason why we’ve won 10 games on the bounce at home and why we’ve got one of the best defensive home records in the league.

“We can’t lose sight of that and we’ve got a great opportunity to bounce back at Wycombe on Tuesday night.

"We are the same team that went on that run and we are still very much fighting for third place.

“We probably thought before the game today that 9 points would be enough and we’ve still got 9 points to play for.

“It’s not over, we will keep going and I’ve always thought that the mark of a good team is being able to bounce back.

“This is not a time for moaning and groaning, it’s a time for standing up and being tough.

“99% of the crowd today were absolutely brilliant and I promise them we are going to do all we can to get promotion.

“I know that the players are hurt and disappointed for themselves and the supporters and I know that when I see them on Monday morning they will be chomping at the bit for Wycombe.”
