Jon Brady was disappointed with the goals the Cobblers conceded as he reflected on Saturday’s away defeat at league leaders Portsmouth.
“To concede a set piece early on was very disappointing as were the goals we gave away,” he said.
“At 2-0 against ten men I felt we had an opportunity but we then imploded for their third goal.
“Injuries have hit us and Sam Hoskins has gone down with a hamstring injury today which we will have to get assessed.
“Ben Fox has been out all season and he could only come on for fifteen minutes and Sam Sherring felt his ankle in the warm-up which is why he couldn’t come on but
Ben coming on for fifteen minutes is a positive.
“Everybody tipped us for relegation, today was tough but overall we have shown we can be competitive in this league. We know the fight we’ve got and we will keep fighting to try and achieve that.”
