The views of the Cobblers boss ahead of Saturday's trip to Gillingham

19 October 2017

Cobblers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has demanded that his side build on Tuesday's point at Rochdale when they hit the road again for Saturday’s game at Gillingham.

The Cobblers came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 in Lancashire on Tuesday and Hasselbaink says the players need to use that comeback as a base to move forward from.

“We need to build on Tuesday night,” he said.

“We showed real fight in the game at Rochdale and that must help our spirit and belief.

“We don’t want to look too far ahead and we are just taking it game by game but hopefully we can really start to kick on from here.

“Goals have obviously been a problem for us this season and we’ve spoken at length about the importance of everyone being able to contribute.

“It’s not just down to the strikers, we need goals from all areas of the team.

“We got that on Tuesday night and to be a successful team you need everybody to chip in.”
