'WE LOOKED MORE SOLID DEFENSIVELY BUT NOT AS FLUID GOING FORWARD' - DEAN AUSTIN ON THE POINT WITH NOTTS COUNTY

The Cobblers boss on reflecting on the draw with Notts County last weekend

26 September 2018

Northampton Town manager Dean Austin said he had mixed feelings as he looked back on last Saturday's draw with Notts County at the PTS Academy Stadium.

The Cobblers kept a clean sheet and claimed a point from a 0-0 draw, but Austin felt this side weren't quite as creative going forward as they had been.

"I thought the football wasn't as good, we weren’t as fluid as we have been but we were more solid and kept a clean sheet," said Austin as he reflected on last weekend.

"I thought we still had the better of the chances, the best one in the last minute, and it fell to the best technical player on the pitch, but that is the way things are going at the moment.

"We are still trying to play the same fluid way but also be more solid as well and marrying the two. We picked up a few things on Saturday in terms of positioning and things that can help us moving forward and we are working on those things this week.

"The clean sheet was pleasing, but we know we need more. I think we have created more than enough chances to win games so far, and having reviewed all of the games and the first nine games as a whole, we could easily have had seven points more but we haven't been good enough on front of goal and that's the fact."
