Cobblers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is expecting a very tough game as the Cobblers travel to 5th placed Wigan Athletic on Tuesday night.
“Wigan are a good free scoring side but there will be opportunities for us,” he said.
“I’m still learning about my team and if we could have kept a clean sheet on Saturday that would have been immense.
“I expected more from my team on Saturday, we didn’t really get out of the starting blocks even when we scored and we sat back a little bit too much.
“I’ve got some talented players and we need to work to get the best out of them.
“We need to work together, not individually and we will get better together as a team.”
