Cobblers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink stressed the importance of staying positive ahead of Tuesday night’s trip to Rochdale.
“We need to turn things around quickly,” he said.
“We need to keep ourselves close to the pack and we need to stay positive.
“The quick turn around this week helps us and we need to stay bright.
“The players need to see that I believe in them which I do, we need to keep knocking on the door and hopefully that door will open very soon.
"We are in a tough place at the moment but when we get through this I feel we will flourish.”
