Jon Brady had mixed feelings as he reflected on Tuesday night’s 2-2 draw at home to Leyton Orient.
Trailing at half-time, a Sam Hoskins double early in the second half turned the game on its head but the Cobblers had to play the last half an hour with ten men following Kieron Bowie’s sending off and despite some heroic defending couldn’t quite hang on for the three points, Orient scoring six minutes into stoppage time.
“We couldn’t quite see it out and that’s tough to take right now,” he said.
“We stepped on the gas at the start of the second half to turn things around and could have maybe even gone on to score more goals but the sending off obviously changes the dynamic of the game.
“I haven’t seen the incident yet and I will have to watch it back.
"I was disappointed with the goal we conceded but for the majority of the first half I felt we were in the ascendancy. There were a few areas we said at half-time where we needed to improve and we did that.
“With eleven men I felt we had the momentum and could have pushed on to get the win, the sending off changes the dynamic but when the dust has settled you probably take a point.”
