Jon Brady has backed his players to return to form ahead of Saturday's game with Burton Albion at Sixfields.
“We’ve had bumps in the road in the past and bounced back really well," he said.
“It’s not that long ago we were putting in a really good performance against Leyton Orient, we are in a tough period at the moment and in the last two games we’ve lost that bit of energy and spark.
“We need to get back to that and start building that momentum in games again.
“First and foremost we need to eradicate the poor starts we’ve had in games and when things are against you that’s when you need to work even harder.”
