The views of the Cobblers boss

Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd reflected on the 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon.

"It was a brilliant old fashioned game and I think this could turn out to be a massive point for us," he said.

"Both teams were fully committed and it was real blood and thunder stuff.

"We stood upto the challenge and I'm genuinely pleased with a point.

"We came back well and in the end could have won it.

"We stayed focused and four points from two away games is a good return.

"We had a fantastic following again tonight and I thank the fans for that.

"I think teams will work that little bit harder against us now because we are a decent team and we have got to make sure that mentally we are on the front foot.

"The introduction of Chris Hackett and Clive Platt made a big difference, we contained Wimbledon up to that point but when those two came on I thought we had the upper hand.

"It was end to end and both teams could have won it and both teams could have lost it.

"They are fighting and scrapping for everything and our lads are doing that as well.

"Lee Nicholls made a great save to keep us in it and at the end Neil Sullivan made a great save to keep it at 1-1.

"I felt one or two players needed a bit of a breather tonight and on top of that I just wanted to utilise the squad. We lose Joe Widdowson for two games now which makes the signing of Lee Collins even more important."
