The Cobblers boss reflects on Monday night's game

22 June 2020

Cobblers boss Keith Curle was a happy man as he reflected on the Cobblers 3-0 win at Cheltenham, a result that saw his side overturn a two goal first leg deficit and book a place at Wembley against Exeter City in the Sky Bet League 2 play-off final on June 29.

Vadaine Oliver opened the scoring inside the opening ten minutes before a second half brace from on-loan West Brom striker Callum Morton completed a remarkable comeback.

“I’m very proud, not just of this performance but of all the work that has gone on behind the scenes,” he said.

“It hasn’t been easy but everything has been done correctly by the people in the background at the club and that gave us the platform to go out and play football.

“It was important we had the belief tonight, our plan was to get the first goal because we knew that was vitally important.

“The focus of the players has been very good and if in life you believe in something you are a step closer to doing it.

“A. 2-0 lead is a difficult one to defend and we felt we could really impose ourselves on the game tonight.

“We embrace the way we play, the players will have a day to enjoy their achievement tonight but then we focus on Exeter and trying to replicate this performance."
