Hopefully This Is A Platform For Us

Northampton's game at Torquay United was in doubt for a while but fortunately, from a Cobblers point of view, this went ahead with them collecting a potentially priceless three points.

A 2-1 win at Plainmoor against their relegation rivals brought Northampton back to within touching distance of them and breathed fresh hope into the league two relegation bid.

Chris Wilder was delighted with the win and thought it was warranted, his only disappointed was that more goals weren't scored and this is what they were in search of with the changes he made as he wasn't settling for a two-one win.

The Cobblers boss said: 'We have got threats at the top of the pitch now, we looked a threat all night especially in the first half.

'I am proud of the performance. They all put their bodies on the line and you get your rewards and we did that in the form of three big points.

'We were a touch disappointed with the goal they scored on the stroke of half-time. We could have crumbled and gone under but there wasn't that in the team.'

A first half double from, with both goals early in the half, from Emile Sinclair had the Cobblers in control before Krystian Pearce reduced the deficit but they couldn't find an equaliser.

Wilder was happy to get a win and hopes that this can be something to give his side a 'platform' to build on, adding: 'Overall it is a big three points for us. It is a good start for me in my managerial career here and I am delighted for the fans who were with us all night.

'We are in a difficult situation and there are difficult hurdles to overcome between now and the end of the season. But we need to give ourselves a chance and hopefully this is a platform for us.'

This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
