Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's narrow Sky Bet League One loss against Northampton Town.

Town's afternoon away from home at Sixfields Stadium came to an end with Salop falling to a 1-0 defeat.

Ryan Watson's 8th goal of the season was the difference between the two sides as the Cobblers claimed all three points over Town.

Assistant Manager Aaron Wilbraham was frustrated with the result and feels Town could have done more in the final third.

On the result:

"We knew this would be a tough place to come. It was similar to Burton, Northampton are fighting for their life. We didn't start the game in the best way and got involved with the scrappy battle. We found ourselves a goal down and then we were on the back foot.

"They are fighting for everything and they made it hard. We gave them something to hold on to and we can't give teams a leg-up in that position if we can help it. We know we are going to visit tough places but we have to stay in the game and see off what the opposition is offering.

"We want to take control of games as we did in the second-half. It's one of those days where the lads are disappointed because they wanted to come away from here with a good result as we have done in previous away games.

"The goal came from a throw-in on the right-hand side. We are normally really good at defending those and defending balls into the box. We need to cut that out. It's disappointing to concede any goal."

On chance creation:

"Nathanael Ogbeta put some great balls into the box and was driving the game on for us. He kept on delivering but it didn't quite fall for us today. We didn't create many great chances. We controlled the game in the second-half but didn't really challenge. Sometimes substitutions can disrupt the flow of the game and we were in control. We were fighting for everything and Northampton couldn't get out of their half."

"We have a chance to put it right in a couple of days. The lads are disappointed and we have to make sure we come back with a reaction against Plymouth on Monday. We know this group of lads, we know they will react and we will be ready on Monday."ifollow-subscribe-banner.jpg
