Northampton Town Women joint-managers Josh Oldfield and Liam Williams were satisfied with their side’s 5-0 win at home to Brackley Town in the Northamptonshire FA Women’s Cup on Sunday.
The Cobblers’ victory secured their place in the semi-finals of the competition.
“First of all, I’m really pleased we got the game on, and thank you to Heyford Athletic for helping us out,” Oldfield said.
“It’s about getting a result in a cup game, and we put a lot of value in keeping a clean sheet.
“Credit to Brackley because they never stopped working, they never gave up, and their goalkeeper was outstanding.
“We were frustrated with the first half because we didn’t look after the ball well enough, but we dominated the second half and played with a lot more control.”
The Cobblers return to FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands action at home to Lincoln City next week.
“We’ve had a shaky start to the New Year, but we were on a really good run beforehand,” Williams added.
“We were keeping clean sheets, scoring goals and picking up wins, and we need to get back to doing that.
“We played really well last week, and a harsh decision cost us in the end.
“We’re really pleased with the way the girls are applying themselves, and we’re looking forward to getting stuck into Lincoln.
“We were on the end of a poor result up there earlier in the season, and we want to put that right.”
