JOSH OLDFIELD TAKES POSITIVES FROM NORTHAMPTON TOWN WOMEN'S DISPLAY

Reaction to Sunday's fixture

29 August 2022

Northampton Town manager Josh Oldfield believes there are positives to take from his side’s 2-0 loss away to Leek Town in their second FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands fixture on Sunday.

The afternoon ended in defeat for the Cobblers despite the fact that they were on top for large parts of the game.

Oldfield was pleased with his side’s response to a disappointing opening day last week.

“It was a frustrating result but not a frustrating performance,” he said.

“We deserved to lose last week but we didn’t today.

“We were the better team throughout the 90 minutes so it’s tough to accept.

“It’s frustrating when you don’t get the result that your performance deserves.

“The girls’ reaction to last week was outstanding and we got everything we wanted today apart from the three points we feel were merited.

“If we produce performances like we did today then we’ll get points more often than we don’t, and we can take that as a huge positive.

“We were so much closer to the levels we know we can achieve.”

Oldfield’s side will look to add their first points of the season when they travel to Leafield Athletic on Wednesday.
