Cobblers boss Jon Brady was pleased to end the season with a 'positive result' after they held Sunderland to a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

It was a hard-earned and well-deserved away point for Town, though they should have left with all three given Sam Hoskins broke the deadlock with just six minutes to play.

However, Carl Winchester equalised just moments later as Brady had to make do with a point from his first game in permanentn charge.

"We've said all season since we came in that their work-rate is there and they showed what they can do when they're unified and they work hard and they're all together," said Brady.

"We obviously need to try and move forward now but it's a positive feeling to at least show what we can do, even though we have already been relegated.

"We worked on some organisation and how we could come here and get a result, but these are the places that we want to get back to as quickly as we can because it's a big club and an incredible stadium.

"It's good to finish the season with a positive result, but we've got a lot of hard work ahead."
