Cobblers caretaker boss Jon Brady says the squad were hurting after Saturday but are desperate to bounce back in Tuesday night’s home game with Plymouth Argyle.
“We will be doing everything to try and get a positive result,” he said.
“Plymouth are a good footballing side, very progressive in the way Ryan Lowe wants them to play but we are really looking forward to the contest.
“The players were hurting on Saturday but we move forward and demand more from each other.
“We’ve been in all five games that I’ve been in charge but we are paying the price for lapses in concentration and individual errors.
“We want the players to demand of each other more and give everything to get a result.
“Sometimes when you hit rock bottom there is only one way to go and that is up.
“For all of us involved it really hurts, I’ve immense pride with how this club has moved forward and for everything the club does in the community as well.
“It’s difficult not having the connection with the supporters at the moment but we want to give them some hope and show them we are fighting tooth and nail to stay in this division.
“On Tuesday night we are going to give everything as always and overall we need to be more decisive in both boxes and more clinical with our finishing. We are creating chances but we have to take them.”
