Feels like a loss but a Wigan win and rovers win next and we are in the top 2. Rest for Bennett and Mulgrew.

Mowbray has said the squad has really been suffering with illness. Not excusing the performance in his own words but we just couldn't get to our usual levels. That was clearly evident.

I'm frustrated but it's not the end of the world. Over 90 minutes I think Northampton would have counted themselves unlucky to lose. Yes we had 2 golden chances to take the points late in the game but it wouldn't have been overly deserved.

Lots of season left to go so we move on to Rochdale with Wigan at home to Shrewsbury.

The only hope I have for a title shot now is that someone comes in at deadline day and takes two or three players from Wigan, including Grigg.

End of the day I’d be happy to get promoted but nobody celebrates 2nd place... especially to Wigan.

This obviously depends on us carrying on the current form and not losing Mulgrew (a distinct possibility) in January.
