Rob Page previews Northampton Town v Bradford City
Rob Page is expecting another tough test when Bradford City come to Sixfields on Monday (3pm).
"We couldn't have had a tougher weekend," he said.
"Sheffield United away and Bradford City at home is about as tough as it can get, but that is the level we are playing at now.
"We were so close to a good result on Saturday but we have to move on quickly. We have shown a lot of resilience and commitment in the last two games and we will need to show that again on Monday.
"Bradford are a tough team to beat, they have lost very few games this season but we are confident we can build on what we have done in the last two games.
"We spent a lot of time working on our defending after Rochdale and I think we have seen the benefit of that. Going forward we didn't always make the best decisions at Sheffield United but we know we are a team with goals in us and we are looking forward to being back at Sixfields on Monday to start a new year."
