The views of the Cobblers caretaker manager after Northampton Town v York City at Sixfields, 11 January 2014
Cobblers caretaker boss Andy King was obviously disappointed as he reflected on the home defeat against York.
“I’m thoroughly disappointed,” he said.
“It was just a bit lacklustre and for whatever reason we couldn’t quite get that urgency.
“We played some nice neat football but there was no real creativity.
“We tried to up the tempo in the second half and create chances but it just didn’t happen.
“There wasn’t the edge and the urgency there today and too many of the players were a little bit off the pace.
“Chris Hackett is a big player for us but Matty Blair came in and showed flashes of his pace and what he can bring.
“I was disappointed with the first goal we conceded but I want to look at the whole game again before I reflect fully.
“There has been some improvement but not enough. We want to play football but at the same time we are in a dog fight.
“We are in a more difficult position after this result and what we’ve got to do now is go to Torquay and win.”
