Wilder: A Good Performance And A Great Result

Wilder: A Good Performance And A Great Result

A win was needed by Northampton at the weekend to keep the league two survival hopes alive, and that was exactly what happened.

Northampton had to make home advantage against Northampton count on Saturday and they did just that with a crucial 2-0 win.

Chris Wilder's first win at Sixfields as Cobblers boss was one that he felt his side deserved, it might not have lifted them off the bottom of the league two table but it's brought them back in touch with the others.

Praise was given not only to the players but also the part the fans played.

The Cobblers boss said: 'That was a good performance and a great result for us because Hartlepool have been on a great run. Hopefully, we showed how I want us to play. We saw more belief in the players once we go the first goal.

'Everyone played their part, on the pitch and off it. We did both parts of the game well, in defence and attack.

'In the second half we wanted to make sure we kept on the front foot, we didn't want to sit back, and when we got the second goal I wanted us to go on and try to get a third.

'We saw Hartlepool play in the week and felt we could get at them out wide and we got at them down the flanks. Chris Hackett's second-half performance was excellent and it was a great delivery for the second goal.'

Two goals in quick succession from Mathias Kouo-Doumbe and Brennan Dickenson, one just before the break and one just after secured the Cobblers the win.

Enjoying it is what the boss wanted but he knows attention soon has to be turned to the next game, against Southend on Tuesday night.

He added: 'We need to enjoy this result, especially the way it has been going this season. The supporters haven't had much to cheer this season, especially at home, so we'll enjoy this result and look ahead to Tuesday.

'There is a long way to go but we've given ourselves a chance with this result. Now we need to go again against Southend.'
