Cobblers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said he was proud of his team as he reflected on Saturday’s 2-1 away win at Oxford United.
“It’s not easy coming here and I’m very proud of my players today,” he said.
“We were dominant, we handled Oxford really well and we could have scored more goals.
“We showed a lot of character and belief, Chris Long took his goal really well and we are creating chances.
“We are still improving and we still have things to work on, it’s not a time to stand still and we have still got many more matches to play.
“It’s nice to be out of the bottom four but we need to keep on going.”
