Chris Wilder on Northampton v Carlisle

"This is a great result against dangerous opposition.

"We had a lot of the ball, but we had to defend properly too and we did that.

"They are dangerous opposition, they take chances, they pass it, they open the game it.

"We defended really well second half, I thought the game was pretty comfortable but for a period in the first half, it was a tight old game."
