Cobblers boss aiming for second round spot

14 November 2017

Cobblers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is keen to try and progress through Tuesday's Emirates FA Cup first round replay at Scunthorpe United.

The winner of Tuesday night’s tie will face a trip to Doncaster Rovers in the second round and Hasselbaink wants to make sure it is the Cobblers visiting the Keepmoat in early December.

“We are going to try and put a really strong team together and we want to progress," he said.

“It was a really good team performance on Saturday but we need to keep on going.

“We are just taking every game at a time and we are just concentrating on the next one.

“Saturday has gone now but we want to keep moving forward. A lot went right at Oxford and we need to keep doing those things.

“Chris Long is doing well and we still believe that he will get even stronger. He needed that goal at the weekend and we are working hard to try and create more chances for him.

“We still have things we can improve on but if we keep on performing like we did on Saturday we will win matches.”
