Northampton Town Women joint-managers Josh Oldfield and Liam Williams believe their side could have come away with all three points as they drew 1-1 away to Peterborough United in the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands on Wednesday evening.
Alex Dicks’ 50th first team goal put the Cobblers ahead, but their opponents pegged them back with a late equaliser.
The point extended Northampton’s unbeaten run in all competitions to three matches.
Oldfield thinks his side could have got more out of the game.
“The performance was okay and I think we had levels to move up to,” he said.
“At the end of the day, it’s a Wednesday night game away from home, but we could have added more quality to our play.
“We could have been more incisive and ruthless at times, but we’ll settle for a point, knowing it could have been three.
“It’s been a positive 10 days, so were delighted with the upturn in results.
“We’re getting results now and it’s a case of continuing that momentum.
“We’re looking to build momentum, and confidence comes with that.”
Williams believes there is lots to be learned from the stalemate.
“We would have liked to have seen the game out having been one-nil up,” he added.
“There are things for us to go away and reflect on, and the lesson from today is how to manage being in front.
“We’ve been coming from behind a lot early in the season, today was a different situation and one we’ve got to learn from.
“We want to win every match, and we’ll approach the upcoming games the same way we approach any other.
“That’s with a positive mindset, ready to work hard to try to win those games.”
Oldfield and Williams’ side travel to Lincoln United in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup third qualifying round a week on Sunday.
The Cobblers did the double over their opponents as they won the East Midlands Women’s Regional Football League Premier Division title last season.
