Ben Tozer has admitted the Cobblers were “blown away” by Bradford City in Saturday’s League 2 final at Wembley.
Three first half goals by Bradford consigned Northampton to another year in the division.
Tozer said: “Everyone was confident, we knew we could have beaten them if we had turned up for the first half an hour. We were blown away.
“They were on the front foot, we were on the back foot from the beginning.
“We can only improve on this. Next year we’ll be a better force to be reckoned with.”
