Football - Boothroyd: We should have won

Northampton ended a three-match losing run thanks to Kelvin Langmead's late equaliser against Torquay but boss Aidy Boothroyd felt they should have won.


Langmead scored from close range in stoppage time to cancel out Ryan Jarvis' 62nd-minute opener.

Bothroyd, though, wanted more.

He said: "Torquay's goal led a charmed life at times.

"I thought our set players really caused problems for them and I thought our two front players - Clive Platt and Adebayo Akinfenwa - were a real handful for them all match and at the back we looked solid.

"Clarke (Carlisle) and Kelvin were superb.

"They (Torquay) scored the goal and they are a good side, especially at home, and you know they are going to give you problems, and they did.

"We are growing as a team, and that's part of it. You have got to withstand a barrage - and we did.

"But I thought we deserved at least a point, if not more.

"I think Torquay are a good side, and I was chatting with Martin (Ling) before the game and we were saying we've both had injury problems and I guess we are where we are in the table for a reason."
