Akinfenwa told BBC Radio Northampton: "If someone told me we'd go up but I didn't score again, so be it.
"We'd be worried if we weren't creating chances."

He added: "I'm not too disappointed that my goals have dried up but I do want to turn it around.
"Every striker will tell you that you go through that stage."
Northampton have fallen away from the automatic promotion places with three defeats and a draw in their last four League Two games, but competing in the play-offs would be an improvement on the 20th and 16th-place finishes in the last two seasons.
"It shows how far we've come from last season, that we're disappointed that we're not in the top three or [may not] finish in the top three," continued Akinfenwa.
"If we don't get up automatically, we'll go for the play-offs. The fans have got to stick with us and hopefully we'll have that good day out at Wembley and finish it off with promotion.
