Ben Harding has scored only two goals this season but both have produced crucial 1-0 victories, the midfielder grabbing the winner on Saturday as Cobblers edged past Oxford to maintain their promotion push.

Boothroyd said: "Every time we have the bad weather we have lots of people turn up to help us out and when you have commitment like that it's only right that you repay those people.

"To get the three points is terrific although I thought we did our best to give them at least a point in the second half. When you're in front you have to make sure you play the game in their half but there were three or four occasions when we just gave the ball back to them.

"It's a difficult one for me because I wanted to go in there after the game and shout at them but we won so I didn't, I just left them alone. I'll tell them off on Monday. Our goalkeeper was terrific for us and the first-half performance was very good. It's a very good result for us."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
