Cobblers caretaker boss Dean Austin was a very happy man as he reflected on Saturday’s 3-2 away win at Bury.
“It was quite a tense game and it wasn’t always pretty but I think on clear cut chances we got the three points we deserved,” he said.
“The boys put in a phenomenal shift today and we need to enjoy this win but come Monday we go again and we need to win the next game.
“As a professional the worst thing is for your work rate to be questioned and the group, not just the players in the team, have all been working extremely hard.
“Kevin van Veen had a dead leg, he tried to run it off but that’s why I made the change with Sam Hoskins.
“I felt Sam’s pace could cause Bury problems, it was a fantastic finish and he did everything I asked of him.
“It’s a big game again next week against Plymouth and we need to give the home fans something to cheer about. The supporters were fantastic again today.”
