Cobblers boss Keith Curle was left frustrated as he reflected on Saturday’s 2-1 away defeat at Bradford City. Charlie Goode headed the Cobblers in front from a corner midway through the first half but two goals in the last fifteen minutes for the home side turned the game around.
“I felt we deserved the lead we had at half-time and in the second half we were a good save away from going 2-0 ahead,” he said.
“David Cornell didn’t have much to do in the first half and we looked dangerous. Our shape was good, we came with a game plan and it was working.
“Andy Williams had taken a knock early on, I thought he did very well in the first half but I felt we needed a physical presence and that’s why Vadaine Oliver came on. It’s not easy coming on in a game but for me Vadaine could have done a bit more to hold the ball up and he just became a little isolated.
“We are making progress game by game and today I felt we deserved something.”
