Cobblers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink acknowledges his side face another tough test when Bradford City visit Sixfields on Saturday for the club's Community Day.
Northampton Town will have played six of the current top eight in their first nine games after Saturday, and Hasselbaink says he is confident his squad can rise to their latest tough challenge.
“The games are coming thick and fast but these are the games we want,” he said.
“Bradford are another good side but no matter the opposition it’s what you do and you want to put on a display.
“We are still learning and it is always going to be a work in progress.
“We played a good side on Tuesday night but for the most part we dealt with them pretty well. One moment cost us and that was a pity but it’s fine margins. Now we face another good side on Saturday but it is a game we are looking forward to."
