Alex Nicholls grabbed a late winner to earn the Cobblers all three points.

"Our performance in the first 35 minutes was as good as any we've produced since I've been here," enthused Boothroyd.

"I thought we were well worth our win. We were fantastic, the work ethic, commitment and our passing was excellent, and we outplayed them in the middle of the park.

"The only thing I was disappointed about was that we didn't score three or four goals because we created some great chances.

"But Rotherham are a very good side and I knew they would come back at us. They were stronger than us for long periods in the second half but if teams want to try and dominate us we've got quick players who can catch them on the break."

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.
