Northampton’s season continues to be a struggle and a third straight defeat, when they lost 3-1 at Chesterfield, leaves them in deep league two relegation trouble.

It had all started so well for the Cobblers at Sixfields before defeat for a third game running, to leave them six-points adrift of safety.

Andy King, almost certainly his final in caretaker charge, felt aggrieved by some decisions made by his players and that went against them, but ultimately didn’t think that there was too much between the relegation strugglers and promotion chasing Chesterfield.

The caretaker boss said: ‘Any game you lose is disappointing but even more so with the position we are in. We got ourselves in front but then let them back into it with a schoolboy error.

‘I told the players at half time that I felt some of them weren’t doing it for us but there still wasn’t much to choose between the two sides. Chesterfield only looked occasionally like a side in second place and we did very well against them at times.

‘I asked the referee about the penalty and should their keeper have been sent off? But he said our player was going away from goal so he didn’t see it as a sending off offence. It’s just one of those things that happen when you are struggling, they happen when you’re in this position.’

Darren Carter had put the Cobblers ahead from the penalty spot before Dan Gardner equalised then Gary Roberts and Armand Gnanduillet wrapped up the points.
