May targets title push
Northampton utility-back Tom May believes Friday night's win at Bath has proved his side can compete for the Premiership title.
May came off the bench to kick a late drop goal in the game at the Rec, to seal an 18-14 win to make it three victories in a row for Jim Mallinder's men.
Northampton have often been one of the early season pacesetters, before tailing off in the final stages of the season when their relatively light squad starts to struggle.
However, May believes they've found something extra over the summer and feels the win at Bath proves their extra steel.
"We're moving in the right direction and I'd rather be playing the way we are now and winning than flying because there is still a long way to go," he added.
"We can always get better, we can always improve on what we are doing, but four points is four points and it is vitally important that we go to places like Bath and win if we want to be challenging at the top of the league, which we all do."
