Rotherham Worked Harder Than We Did

Rotherham Worked Harder Than We Did

Sometimes you have to hold your hands up and admit that the better side beat you.

Aidy Boothroyd conceded that Rotherham were better than his Northampton side and they got nothing, as they deserved: 'We didn't deserve anything out of the game. I think for the first time this season we got out-worked, and I very rarely say that about our players.

'Rotherham worked harder than we did, and if you don't work hard then you get turned over and that's what happened.

'When a team is under a bit of pressure they send us along because we seem to get them up again, and I don't know why that is because we are better than that, far better than that, but we can't be good every weekend.'

An honest account from The Cobblers boss really!

Sometimes, as said, you have to do this and Boothroyd summed up by adding: 'You have to give credit to the opposition, they were their points today and they deserved them.'
