Although disappointed not to have won, Cobblers boss Keith Curle praised the focus of the players as he reflected on Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Notts County.
“With the chances and the man advantage that we had, I’d definitely say it’s two points dropped,” he said.
“We had some great opportunities to win the game in the second half and it’s always good to see the set pieces you have worked on come off.
“The players have had a good week and I thought their focus was excellent but you are always at your most vulnerable when you have just scored.
“They have responded to me personally very well and the individual application has been very good. They have listened and I’ve been impressed with their concentration levels.
“I think it’s unfair to start talking about next season just yet, we have got five games to go and we need to put in five more performances.
“We want to build a platform in which we can take this football club forward.
“It was a phenomenal turn out from the fans again and that is another thing that gives us a great foundation from which to build.”
