Cobblers boss Chris Wilder praised the way his players dealt with the conditions as he reflected on Saturday’s 2-0 win against York at an extremely windy Sixfields.

“The conditions were unbelievable and in my time as a manager and as a player I don’t think I’ve ever been involved in a game where conditions have been quite like that,” he said.

“We tried to get the ball down and play and when we did I thought we looked dangerous in real tough conditions.

“It was a dangerous game for us today but we had to put it to bed and we can’t deny that it has been a good day for us today.

“We are after points and we just have to keep rolling the wins out if we are going to achieve what we want to achieve this season."

Speaking about Zander Diamond’s substitution in the first half, Wilder added:

“Zander took a knock to the head and the doctor made the decision he had to come off.

“He wanted to stay on but we have to respect the doctor’s opinion and we certainly don’t want to take any risks with the health and well being of any of our players.”
