​Northampton players banned from talking about Man Utd clash

League One Northampton boss Rob Page had an interesting way of dealing with being drawn to face Manchester United in the cup.

"I banned the players from talking about it as we had to focus on the league game in hand," Page said. "I didn't want to take the focus off the league campaign and we've had two wins since the draw was made and some great results in the league, which has been our focus.

"We've got the weekend out of the way now. It was a disappointing result for us so we need to put things right from the weekend and get back the aspects of our game that were missing, which we've had for most of the other matches so far this season."
