Continuity has helped us - Hinton

Last updated : 25 January 2010 By BBC Sport

Northampton Town captain Craig Hinton has pinpointed continuity of selection as a key factor in the Cobblers' seven-match unbeaten run in League Two.Saturday's goalless draw with Chesterfield means Ian Sampson's side have now gone 495 minutes without conceding a goal.

"You get used to playing with the same players, week in and week out," Hinton told BBC Radio Northampton.

"We go out knowing who's playing where and work to each other's strengths."

He added: "I think we're also working very hard as a squad and if you do that you reap the rewards. That's what's happening at the moment."

Goalkeeper Chris Dunn is closing in on a club record for successive clean sheets - both Len Hammond (1930-31) and Alan Starling (1975-76) managed six consecutive clean sheets in league games for the Cobblers.

Dunn could equal that tally when Northampton visit Darlington in League Two on Tuesday night.
