Cobblers boss Keith Curle praised the character of his team as he reflected on Saturday’s 2-1 home win over previously unbeaten Forest Green Rovers, Andy Williams' winner deep into second half stoppage time sealing the three points in a dramatic finale.
“It was a very pleasing win and for me as a manager when that second goal went in there was a really nice feeling back from the fans,” he said.
“As a manager and a coach when you come to a club you want to feel that sense of belonging and hopefully this is just the start for us.
“I admire Forest Green and what Mark Cooper is doing there and in a way that makes this victory even more pleasing. The wind made conditions difficult for both sides today but we showed a real willingness and desire to win that game.
“The players at the moment are performing at a high level and it’s my job to keep those demands high.
“It was nice for Andy Williams to get his goal and I’m sure that will be a weight off him but I know he is a player that will get goals. It was good work from Kevin van Veen and Andy with his work rate will earn himself those type of opportunities in front of goal.”
