“Lots of positives to take away from the Northants tussle, where all 3 results were in play until the final stages.

“While we felt we held the upper hand for the majority of the match, taking 20 was the piece of the puzzle we were missing.

“We all look forward to Cheltenham starting Sunday and another opportunity to keep climbing the table.”
