Joint-managers Lou Barry and Josh Oldfield were delighted with Northampton Town’s 3-0 win away to Rotherham United in the East Midlands Women’s Regional Football League Premier Division on Sunday.
Leah Cudone scored twice and Chloe Martin scored the Cobblers’ other goal as they continued their perfect league record and extended their winning run to seven games.
Speaking after the match, Oldfield said: “I thought we were excellent and in control of the game from start-to-finish.
“This is a difficult place to come and Rotherham made us work for what we got.
“The girls were spot on and did everything we asked them to do, and it was a really satisfying win.”
Barry echoed his counterpart’s comments, saying: “Rotherham sat behind the ball, slowed the game down and made it tough for us to get into a rhythm.
“We kept calm, kept moving the ball and the goals came eventually.
“It’s another massive three points.”
The Cobblers travel to in-form promotion rivals Lincoln United next week. Their opponents have won five league games in a row.
Barry added: “These top-of-the-table games are what we’re involved in football for, and we’re looking forward to it.
“It’s a match-up between two of the best teams in the division and both will want to prove how good they are.
“We trust our own ability and we’re confident going into every game.”
