Apologies for the lack of content over the last few important days of this season…like a certain claret kitted football team we all know and love, I’ve been on the move over the weekend. And, in direct correlation to the antics of the Cobblers in the last two matches, moving house was an experience that had a few tough moments, almost had us in a panic but that eventually was salvaged at the end thanks to some solid team work.
Last night’s last-gasp victory at Burton had to be looked up on phone internet because even teletext, let alone the Internet, is out of bounds at the moment as boxes are slowly but surely unpacked in the village of Peasedown St John on the outskirts of Bath (I’m told former Cobblers keeper and George Best’s nemesis from the 8-2 drubbing Kim Book has, or has had in the past, family here).
So it was with utter delight that I read of Kelvin Langmead’s winner in stoppage time that cast aside Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Accrington as merely a reminder that the job isn’t done yet. Perhaps in the long term, Saturdays reverse will turn out to be a positive as it focused the players’ minds once again to get a job done and bring a disastrously out of form Burton into the mix and to within three points of ourselves going into a crunch Sixfields meeting with Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.
That’s a game that could well and truly catapult us out of danger should three more points be gained and a further gap be made. The Pilgrims are still in deep but will be chomping at the bit to pull us back in as well.
I’ll have to find an alternative mode of score finding again for that one because of a switch over of Internet not coming until next Tuesday but hopefully by this time next week I can reflect on more good news from Planet Sixfields.
Until then, have a good weekend…see you on t’other side!
