Disappointed Wilder still believes

Northampton manager Chris Wilder admitted his side were not good enough in their 3-0 home defeat to 10-man Rochdale.

Wilder's side went into the match boasting a six-game unbeaten run but were no match for promotion-chasing Dale.

Former Cobbler Ian Henderson opened the scoring before laying on the third goal for Joe Bunney.

Matthew Lund was given his marching orders for over-celebrating after he doubled Rochdale's advantage in the second half.

"We weren't good enough, we're big enough to admit that," said Wilder, whose side remain three points from safety.

"It's three points lost and thankfully no more because of a poor performance.

"We've made some big strides since we've been here but we've taken a backward step. Hopefully, it's a one-off because we can't let that happen over the next few games.

"We're not happy as a staff with that performance and the players should feel the same. But it's no use me slaughtering the players, now it's up to them to go again at Morecambe on Saturday.

"I always knew it was going to be a tough challenge when I came here but I still believe we will get out of trouble."
