Club captain Nicky Adams has said the players in the Cobblers squad let the supporters, the club and manager Keith Curle down last weekend, and are determined to put things right as quickly as possible
“It was not good enough and we don’t accept that as a group,” said Adams.
“We let ourselves down, we let the manager and his staff down and we let the fans down – and we don’t hide from that.
“We put the onus on ourselves and it’s not acceptable and it’s not good enough. I was going to put a tweet out after the game but I was just so disappointed with how we performed.
“It’s not like us, especially first-half. In the second-half we showed a bit of fight and a bit of grit with 10 men after Vadaine was wrongly sent off, in my opinion, but it wasn’t acceptable from us.
“The fans are great. I’ve got a brilliant relationship with them and even at the end of the game on Saturday I went over and clapped them because that’s what it’s all about.
“Myself, Charlie Goode, Alan McCormack and a few others said sorry because we know it’s not acceptable, even though we got plaudits for carrying on and trying in the second-half.
"We need to put things right and perform much better than we did at Scunthorpe."
