Cobblers celebrate Peter Kioso's second goal on Tuesday.

Jon Brady has vowed to do ‘justice’ to Northampton’s ‘amazing’ community as the Cobblers continue to fight for their League One survival.

Town picked up an impressive and well-deserved 3-0 victory over play-off hopefuls Ipswich on Tuesday evening.

Results elsewhere did not go their way as Rochdale, AFC Wimbledon, Wigan and Swindon also all won, but the three points ensured Cobblers remain in the fight with only three games of the season left.

Northampton could be relegated if they lose at Gillingham on Saturday and Wigan and Wimbledon both win, but they could also be within just a point of safety should they triumph at Priestfield.

Cobblers have won five of their last seven home games but are yet to win away from home in 2021.

“It would be nice to get that first away win on Saturday and we will do whatever it takes,” said Brady.

“You could see from Tuesday – the output from the players was great and they’re not giving in.

“There is no way on this earth that we are going to submit and give up. We’ll keep trying all the way.

“You look at our football club and the wider community here, we’ve got amazing people that work so hard and we need to make sure that we do all of these people in Northampton justice.

“Everyone has been through a tough time with the pandemic and we need to lift people and give them something to cling to and show them that we’re still fighting and doing everything we can for this club – that’s all we can do.

“We can take a lot of heart from Tuesday's performance and hopefully we can keep really important members of the squad fit.

“Our home form has been excellent. That’s five wins in seven and also a draw but it’s just the away form and that’s something we have to change on Saturday against Gillingham.”
