The views of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink on the narrow defeat at Wigan

19 September 2017

Cobblers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink saw plenty to be encouraged about as he reflected on Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat at Wigan Athletic.

“We did really well for the majority of the game to close Wigan down and the one time we didn’t they scored with a shot from distance,” he said.

“That was unfortunate but I thought it was a very good display from us. At times we can be calmer instead of panicking a little bit but that will come in time.

“We did well and on another luckier day Leon Barnett scores and also having seen it again we should have had a penalty for handball.

“Wigan are one of the sides who are going to challenge this season, I don’t like losing but today I’m content with our performance."
