Northampton Town manager Keith Curle is expecting a tough game against Accrington Stanley on Saturday.
The Cobblers come in to this game on the back of four points from their last two league games - a win against Wigan and a draw with MK Dons.
“I think it will be a toe-to-toe encounter, it won't be two teams dancing around each other,” he said.
“Accrington have got good strengths, they get good numbers in the box and they put balls in good areas.
“We haven’t prioritised the league now we are out of the cup, our priority from day one this season has been to try and establish ourselves in League 1. That hasn't changed at all and nor has our belief.
“The players know that Monday night was nowhere near good enough in any way, either individually or collectively. It was a great opportunity for some of the players and they just didn’t perform.
“They will get other opportunities in the future but they know that they have to deliver.
"We've had set backs over the last two years but each time we have had one we have come back stronger and that is our challenge again."
