RUFC - View from the Opposition - Northampton Town

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said it was soul destroying after his team lost a two-nil lead at Don Valley to third from bottom of the league, Northampton Town, to end up with a point.

On the other hand, Cobblers boss, Ian Sampson told their Official Site that he was 'delighted to get a point.`

'The first half was quite open,` Sampson said, 'and I thought we were a bit unlucky with their first goal because it took a massive deflection, though their second was a good strike. But we responded really well with two well worked goals.

'We told the players, before the game, that if we kept our discipline we would have a good chance of getting something from the game and it`s a good point away from home but we need to back that up by winning our home games.`

Skipper, Andy Holt,who scored the equalising goal last night said, 'After the second goal went in I told the lads that we`d got to stick together, because it`s early days and they`d not shown anything special and we didn`t let our heads drop and we got back into it.

'We managed to get the ball into the front men which brought their full-backs come in nice and narrow which gave us wingers time to get on the ball and we managed to get some good balls in and create some chances.`

Abdul Osman, the Cobblers midfielder, said that it was a good point to get but he thought that Northampton were the better side and should have gone on and won the game.
