Crosby draws comfort

Northampton assistant manager Malcolm Crosby admitted the 1-1 draw with Southend was a fair result - and he is getting used to them. John Johnson's strike was cancelled out seven minutes later by Shrimpers' top scorer Barry Corr as the Cobblers drew for the sixth straight match. Crosby said: "I think for an away team to come here and get a point is a good result because I think Southend are a decent team and it is difficult to come here and win." "The changes we made in the second half had an effect and perhaps with a bit of luck we might have gone on and nicked it, but I think a draw was a fair result because Southend were better than us in the first half. "We are not thinking about getting another draw. What we need to do is to go 1-0 up and then strive for and get a second goal. We had a couple of opportunities to get a second goal and we did not take them, and that's been happening quite regularly."
