Honest assessment from the boss

Paul Lambert admitted that Town's performance in a stalemate with Northampton was 'not good enough'.

The visitors had the better of the chances in what turned out to be a goalless draw at Portman Road.

Asked what he thought of the point with the Cobblers, he said: "Well it wasn't good enough. That's the bottom line.

"The second half was a bit better but to be honest the results haven't been good enough for a long time.

"We are all in this together but the manager always gets the blunt of criticism. But, like I say, it hasn't been good enough.

"Only Nors [James Norwood] tested the 'keeper tonight. I don't know if it's a lack of confidence but we have to have shots.

"It should have been a penalty on Judgey [Alan Judge] at the end but it is a results business.

"The aftermath of that incident needs to be looked at."

On Blues' position in the league table, the Town boss added:

"People can say we're near the play-offs with games in hand, but right now it's not good to look at.

"We all know that we have to better on Saturday. We can't get away from the fact that things must be better. Oxford are doing well and it'll be a different game to tonight, but we certainly need to improve. The lads know it."
