Northampton Town head coach Keith Curle has told the club website that he was delighted to end the season with a big 5-2 win over Oldham Athletic.
The Cobblers have not had a season to shout about as they ended up in the middle of Sky Bet League Two but while they didn’t challenge for promotion, they at least didn’t end up anyway near the relegation zone. They would like to challenge for promotion next season so Curle was hoping to end the season on a high as they traveled to Oldham.
And they certainly gave their fans something to cheer about as they put five past Oldham. They did go behind early with Oldham’s Johan Branger putting the Latics ahead, but Northampton were able to turn that around with goals from Sam Hoskins and Aaron Pierre. Andy Williams scored on either side of the half to make it 4-1 and while Oldham got one back through Callum Lang, Northampton ended the day with a goal as Junior Morais got on the scoresheet.
After the match, Curle said: “The attitude and application of the players was good,”
“We had a good response after going a goal behind and we showed the right attitude and application to go on and win the game.”
“We got ourselves on the front foot, we want to play a high tempo game and we want to play in the opposition half.”
“If you find yourselves in and around the final third enough you will get your rewards.”
“The players have two more responsibilities this season now, the end of season dinner on Sunday and then I will have my meetings with them on Monday.”
