Cobblers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is wary of the threat by our hosts but has stressed the need to achieve a consistent level of performance ahead of Saturday’s trip to Oldham.
“The league is tight and it’s the little details that we need to get right,” he said.
“Oldham have got good players who can put you in trouble and they are very fluent in the way they play. We have to be right with our organisation but on the other hand with the way they play we will have opportunities.
“We know we need to score goals and it is a problem but the more you concentrate on that the more of a problem it can become. It’s time to stay calm and really keep on working at it.
“We need goals from everywhere in the team but in particular the strikers. They need to score but we need to provide more opportunities for them as well. We have to keep on at it and when the strikers do start scoring they will start to create their own chances.
“I believe that we have the right players to deliver, at the moment we are a bit too up and down and we need to try and stay level for longer and from there look to improve.”
