Cobblers boss Keith Curle was pleased as he reflected on Good Friday’s 3-1 home win over Macclesfield Town.
“We ground it out,” he said.
“We didn’t really have any fluidity in our play in the first half but there were some players out there who haven’t had much game time.
“I was pleased with the goals we scored but our movement can still improve and at times we need to get the ball out from the back quicker.
“Creativity wasn’t there in abundance in the first half and I was disappointed with the goal we conceded.
“Daniel Powell and Junior Morias had a good work ethic and understanding and I thought they linked up well. They haven’t had much time playing together but there were good signs.
“Our season isn’t over and we will keep working hard.”
