Northampton defender Kelvin Langmead takes responsibility for crucial errors in Gillingham defeat

On-loan Northampton Town defender Kelvin Langmead has apologised for two key mistakes that led to penalties in Saturday’s away defeat to Gillingham.

The 26-year-old netted himself in the 4-3 defeat but has taken full responsibility for the two spot-kicks awarded to their opponents when he spoke to BBC Radio Northampton, with the latter being the winner successfully converted by Danny Kedwell in the 91st minute: “I’ve got to hold my hands up. I’ve said sorry to the lads but it counts for nothing when you lose the game. It’s not quite coming together but we’ve showed how good we can be.”

The result saw the Cobblers fall to 20th in the League Two table having last tasted victory six games ago in a 2-1 win at fellow strugglers Barnet.

Gary Johnson’s men will face rivals Luton in the FA Cup on Saturday and will surely welcome the distraction of the cup as they look to regain both confidence and form.
