Hill Looks Ahead To Northampton

Hill Looks Ahead To Northampton

Keith Hill has hailed the attitude and application of the players, and talks Northampton.

Speaking to the Official Site Hill talked firstly about the commitment from the players.

'The application and the attitude of the players has been superb and it was the same against Chesterfield. I thought we defended very well. As good as it was resolute against a possession based team, we didn't look in too much trouble so I was pleased with that.'

Hill however did say we had to have more flexibility in switching to attack and he wants us to cause the opponents far more trouble in future games.

And speaking of future games it's an away trip to Northampton next, an Hill's focus is on that.

'It's about progressively building and we've been doing in training. We want it in performances and we want three points on Saturday, because if we get three points it turns what has been a decent start into a great start and it can build momentum.'

Hill obviously says that it will be a difficult game because they have lots of quality and he knows Aidy Boothroyd will get them promoted in the foreseeable future.
