Cobblers boss Justin Edinburgh emerged from a frustrated dressing room as he reflected on Saturday’s narrow defeat against Fleetwood Town.
“We are all disappointed and frustrated,” he said.
“All of our first three games have been even and tight, but we haven’t capitalised on the key moments and that is what we must do.
“Their keeper made three or four excellent saves just before half time but in all honesty I felt we shouldn’t have given him the opportunity to do that.
“I fully understand the fans feeling anxious but had we got ahead that feeling evaporates and things become a lot easier for the players and that's what we have to do.
“We have looked solid in all three games so far but we need to start turning those key moments our way. We want to be winning football games and we will work even harder to make sure we do. We win and lose together.
“We are a new squad who will get better and better but we should have got something from that game today.”
