A 'hugely frustrated' Jon Brady apologised to Cobblers supporters for his side's deeply disappointing performance in defeat to Crewe Alexandra on Saturday.

Town produced their worst performance under Brady to date to slip to a costly defeat and further dent their survival aspirations.

No able to register a single shot on target throughout the 90 minutes, Cobblers were beaten by Owen Dale's goal 16 minutes from time.

They are now 22nd in Sky Bet League One and still one point from safety.

"It was hugely frustrating," admitted Brady. "First and foremost, I apologise to our fans and to anyone who watched that on iFollow.

"When we played Burton, in my first game, we only had two days to prepare and yet we still played a lot more football in that game than we did today.

"Yes, it was a real dogfight out there today but there are times when you've got to win the battle and then you get the time and space to play on top of that.

"I was hugely disappointed by our decision-making today. When you first saw us play, we would get it down and move the ball quickly but there were only brief glimpses of that today.

"That's not us and that's not what we want. We need to be braver on the ball."
