Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd knows it is important that his team start to pick up points as he looks ahead to Saturday's visit from Morecambe.
“It’s not panic stations but as I said to the players on Sunday morning we’ve got to get some points on the board and quickly,” he said.
“It doesn’t matter how we get them we have just got to get them.
“We are working our socks off to get results and when they don’t come you have to just take it on the chin and keep working.
“I’m focused on what we need to do, It doesn’t matter what you do tactically or who plays it’s about putting the hours in, doing the work and in the end you do need that little bit of luck and I’m sure we’ll get it.
“Being in at 7am on Sunday morning I guess was a punishment for all of us but there were a lot of honest words spoken and there was a lot of constructive criticism for each other.
“We’ve got a good group here with good character and I really am convinced that we are not very far away.
“This is a blip but the sooner we get that win things will start falling for us and we’ll get back up the table.
“We’ve come a long way as a club and finishing as high as we did in the league last season brings its own expectations.
“It is hard at the moment but we’ve got a terrific record here over the last 18 months and it’s important that we do the work to get the crowd behind us because they can help us.
“Players ignite the crowd, we’ve got to help to get the crowd behind us and it is up to us to spark a performance and a result.
“It’s a very fine line between winning and losing at any level, we’ve not started how we would have wanted but in five games time we might be in a situation where things look a lot brighter.
“I’ve got a great deal of respect for football supporters everywhere for the hours and the money that they spend to follow their team and I won’t be critical of them.
“We all want the same thing and we will get there.
“It doesn’t really matter what has gone before and I honestly don’t think it will be long before these players are showing what they can do.”
