The Cobblers boss looks back on the Checkatrade Trophy tie with Wycombe Wanderers

4 September 2018

Cobblers boss Dean Austin was disappointed with the first half performance as he reflected on Tuesday night’s Checkatrade Trophy defeat against Wycombe Wanderers, Scott Kashket’s sublime first half strike proving decisive at the PTS Academy Stadium.

“We had a go in the second half but to say the first half we were poor would be an understatement,” he said.

“I see the boys every day in training and I can’t explain that first half, there are no excuses. We were outworked and I’m not going to have that.

“We got the ball into some better areas in the second half and I thought Dean Bowditch was in for the equaliser at the end but that just about sums our luck up at the moment.

“It was good for Shaun McWilliams to get some minutes under his belt but he has still got a little bit of work to do yet.

“Jay Williams has been training with us for a while now, he’s acquitted himself well and he deserved his opportunity.

“We are optimistic on Junior Morias and I’m hoping he will only be out for two to three weeks but we should know more in the next few days."
