Northampton Town defender Ben Tozer has said that a stern half-time talk inspired the players to Saturday's win at Barnet.

The 21-year-old scored the winning goal as the Cobblers beat the Bees 2-1.

Tozer told BBC Radio Northampton: "We said [the first-half] wasn't acceptable. All the fans had travelled and watched that, and it was shocking.

"There was a bit of shouting and [how] we didn't want to see the table [if we lost the game]."

Northampton have lost just once in six matches, and have won three of their last four games in League Two.

Despite just one win at Sixfields this season, Tozer believes the Cobblers have momentum.

"That's our recent form so that's the way we've got to look at it," he said.

"We're going into a live game on TV [versus Crawley Town] early, so we could get an advantage on everyone else."
