Northampton Town performances encourage captain Ian Morris

Northampton Town skipper Ian Morris believes recent results and performances prove the Cobblers are moving in the right direction.

Saturday's draw against Dagenham means that Northampton have lost just one of their last four games.

Morris told BBC Radio Northampton the club could do "something good" this season, despite still being in the League Two relegation zone.

"We have the players in the squad to really kick on," he said.

The 26-year-old Dubliner continued: "If you look at our team this season I don't think we have played the same 11 two games in a row.

"We've had changes all the time and if you look at our injured [players] you can make a case for all of them being in the starting 11 when they're fit.

"As we begin to get players back the results are starting to come, and we just have to hang in there."

Morris, who scored his first goal for Northampton since joining the club from Torquay during the close season, said he felt comfortable playing in an advanced role behind the strikers.

"I like playing central, I think it suits me a lot better, I can get my passing game going - and once we start getting on top of teams we have lads out wide who can cause problems."

And he appealed to supporters to stay behind the team.

"It's coming, it really is. I can see it every day in training, and I fancy us massively at Rochdale on Tuesday. Coming back to draw against Dagenham gives us a lot of confidence and we'll take that to Spotland."
