Cobblers boss Keith Curle felt his side showed their personality in Saturday’s 3-0 away win at Grimsby, Callum Morton with another brace to add to Charlie Goode’s opener.
“As a side we showed our personality,” he said.
“Before the game I challenged the players to show their personality in and out of possession and I was really pleased with their hunger and desire.
“We showed Grimsby respect which they have merited from their recent results but we knew we could cause them problems.
“We got the fundamentals right and we stopped them from playing.
“We’re disappointed with the leads we’ve thrown away this season but the best way to defend a two goal lead is to go for a third goal and we were really pressing for that in the second half.
“I felt it was time for a change in goal and I just felt David Cornell hadn’t quite maintained his own high standards in recent games.
“That is my own personal opinion but make no mistake I have two very good goalkeepers competing for that number one spot.”
