The Cobblers boss on Northampton Town 1 Leyton Orient 1
Cobblers boss Chris Wilder praised his players as he reflected on Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Leyton Orient.
“We weren’t at our best today but our spirit and character nearly got us over the line,” he said.
“I was disappointed with the award of the free-kick and if anything I felt it should have gone our way but I can’t do anything about that.
“At 0-0 we would have taken a point, the character of the side to stick in there was terrific and sometimes you just have to dig in.
“Adam Smith made some unbelievable saves and he was outstanding today. Leyton Orient are a good outfit and they will go well this season.
“We haven’t played as well today as we have done in our last two games but the commitment was there and we’ve kept the run going.”
Wilder also confirmed that Rod McDonald is likely to be out for four to six weeks with Paul Corry set to miss the rest of the season. Meanwhile Ryan Cresswell will undergo a scan on his knee.
“As a manager I’ve never known a week like it,” said Wilder.
“Two of the injuries in training have happened when there hasn’t been a player near them and we’ve lost David Buchanan in the game today. Hopefully that’s nothing too serious but we will have to wait and see.”
