Northampton’s League 2 season continued with another win against Crawley at the Broadfield Stadium on Tuesday.

A Simon Walton foul on Lawson D’Ath gave Marc Richards an early chance to give Northampton the lead but this was saved, fortunately Joel Byrom followed up to score! The Cobblers were two-up when John-Joe O’Toole curled home from distance.

Brendan Moloney’s sending off, just past the hour, gave Crawley a penalty that was converted by Walton but the Cobblers saw out a two-one win to keep 3rd place.

The other results this midweek were as follows:-

Tuesday 24th November 2015
Accrington P-P Hartlepool
Wimbledon 0-1 Dag & Red
Bristol Rovers 1-2 Stevenage
Crawley 1-2 Northampton
Luton 3-4 Carlisle
Mansfield 0-2 Exeter
Morecambe 2-4 Cambridge
Notts County 4-2 Barnet
Oxford Utd 1-1 Newport
Plymouth 1-1 Leyton Orient
Portsmouth 6-0 York
Yeovil 0-1 Wycombe

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Dagenham and Stevenage?

Honourable mentions have to be given to Carlisle who edged out Luton in a ‘seven-goal’ thriller and Portsmouth who thrashed York six-nil!

Wimbledon would have been expected, by many, to beat a struggling Dagenham side at Kingsmeadow but the Dons couldn’t make the breakthrough but as the Daggers did they left with a very important three-points after a one-nil win.

Stevenage, albeit ‘relatively clear’ of trouble, also picked up a big three-points against a Bristol Rovers side looking to secure back-to-back promotions via the play-offs, having come into League 2 winning the Non-League play-off final last season – they saw their top seven hopes dealt a blow when Boro went away from the Memorial Stadium with a two-one win!

Northampton are back in action at the weekend.
