Roberto Martinez

''We set high standards this season, but our first-half performance today wasn't good enough,''' he said.

''If we played like we did for the first 25 minutes, it doesn't matter who we play against we will get punished. We knew Northampton were a good side.

''We had a mountain to climb after going 3-0 down, but had we taken a good chance before half-time going in 3-2 down, we would have had a different approach in the second half.

''I know that's only one point out of nine, which isn't a good return, but the performances have been good.

''I was disappointed with how we played at the start of the game but happy with the way the players performed for the last hour.''

Stuart Gray

''We started brightly straight from the kick-off and kept their keeper under pressure.

''We didn't give anything away. Swansea are a good footballing side, but we made sure we got at their back four.

''I'm sure Swansea will still go on and win this league, but there's always a dark horse that comes up on the rails, and, hopefully, that will be us.''
