Cobblers boss Keith Curle was pleased with a clean sheet as he reflected on Tuesday night’s goalless draw with MK Dons.
“It was a disciplined performance,” he said.
"I’ve got a good understanding of how MK Dons play and we needed to be disciplined, credit and testament to the players they took on board all the information we gave them.
“If you go ragged against MK Dons they will pick you off and I was really pleased to get the clean sheet.
“We frustrated them in the first half and I thought we broke on them very well without having that little bit of magic to find that final pass. In the second half we had a couple of chances with Fraser Horsfall, he could have done better with the first header and on another night his second header either goes in off the cross bar or falls to one of our players.
“We’ve got an important couple of months now, there is a lockdown in England coming on Thursday but we are still able to do our jobs. We will shut the first team squad down for a couple of days now, we will come back to work later in the week under the new protocols as we prepare for Monday night and we have got to be respectful of that.”
