NORTHAMPTON boss Keith Curle gleaned positives from his side's last-gasp defeat at Forest Green.

The Cobblers looked nailed on for a fifth draw on the spin until Theo Archibald popped up with a stoppage-time winner.

Curle said: "I thought we dominated possession in the second-half and we had the territorial advantage.

"We dealt with the majority of their attacks and I thought we won the battles in midfield, but again we just needed that break.

"I thought it was going to come from the cross for Sam Hoskins' chance and that would have been a perfect day's work.

"We set up with a slightly different formation and different personnel but I thought we looked fresh and we looked bright.

"Take the first two or three minutes out of it when we got caught with the goal, we settled into a rhythm, we stopped them from playing and we got close to them and cause them problems on the break with the willingness to get into the box

"I still say we need more quality in the final third area and we can manipulate the ball and work the better because sometimes in the first-half we had opportunities to break, but overall a very positive game."
