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."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
