STAND-IN skipper Andy Booth looked back at the 1-1 draw with Northampton which extended Town's winless League I run to seven matches and insisted: "There's definitely something to build on."
Just 8,723, Town's 16th-lowest league crowd since leaving Leeds Road for the Stadium in 1994, saw Joe Burnell give the visitors a 19th-minute lead before Danny Schofield levelled after 66.
It was the 16th time in 22 league games that 17th-placed Town have conceded the opening goal.
But the response of Peter Jackson's side, in which Booth was a central figure, pleased the veteran striker, who said: "We created a stack of chances, and that's encouraging. If we do that on another day, we'll go on to win the match well."
As well as hitting the bar, Booth claimed his 37th-minute header had crossed the line before Burnell cleared, saying: "It looked a goal from where I was.
"The lads close to the line thought so as well, and had it been allowed I think we would have won the game comfortably.
"I hit the bar and had a couple saved, and Micky Collins had one cleared off the line as well, and you did start to wonder if it was going to be one of those days.
"But we stuck to it and Danny Schofield finally scored with a smashing shot, which was no less than we deserved.
"We were far brighter all round, and I think we created more chances in this game than the previous half dozen put together.
"We still haven't got the win we all want, and there were still a couple of spells when we became a little bit sloppy, but there were certainly positives to take into Saturday's match at Chesterfield.
"Our confidence had dipped, but we should all take heart from Saturday's performance."
Booth had praise for the fans as well as the team, adding: "The way they stuck with us after we went behind was excellent, and we're desperate to reward them with a good run over Christmas."
Around 100 gathered outside the main entrance afterwards to protest at chairman Ken Davy.
