The Cobblers boss reflects on Northampton Town 2 Port Vale 1

Cobblers boss Justin Edinburgh praised the resilience of his side as he reflected on Tuesday night’s 2-1 home win over Port Vale.

“We weren’t at our best tonight but we’ve secured the three points,” he said.

“Six or seven weeks ago we might have lost that game but I think we’ve learnt and it’s now very difficult for teams to come here.

“Our home form has been good, it’s not been easy but credit to the players and the fans. Everybody has stuck together and the players have really changed their mentality.

“People know that we have a belief and the players go right to the end. Their fitness is improving all the time and it’s a really pleasing three points tonight."

Speaking about the goals from Aaron Phillips and Matt Taylor, Edinburgh added:

“Aaron’s performances have been absolutely top drawer and whatever his goal was, a cross or a shot, it was nothing more than he deserved. His last three performances have been remarkable and he deserves his place in the team.

“Matt Taylor's strike was terrific and if you see that in the Premier League you are talking about it for a long time. He knew exactly where the keeper was and his execution was spot on.”
