Luke Coddington made his debut in goal as boss Justin Edinburgh made four changes to the side for the visit of in-form Peterborough United. Brendan Moloney replaced Aaron Phillips (thigh) at right wing-back with Matt Grimes and Shaun McWilliams coming into midfield in place of Yaser Kasim and Billy Waters. Chris Long, withdrawn from the starting line-up at Charlton after picking up an injury in the warm-up, was named on the bench. Posh began the afternoon second in League 1 having won their opening three fixtures while the Cobblers were still looking to get off the mark.

As you’d expect for a local derby there was a vibrant atmosphere inside Sixfields as the game kicked off.

Gwion Edwards saw an early header saved by Coddington and Leonardo De Silva Lopes volleyed over when well-placed. Shaun McWilliams linked up with Alex Revell as the Cobblers looked to mount an attack before Marc Richards, in a good position, was penalised for a foul. Ash Taylor then headed wide from a Matt Grimes free-kick.

Peterborough took the lead on 32 minutes, Gwion Edwards firing a shot into the bottom right corner from just outside the area following a quick counter-attack.

Junior Morias made it 2-0 before half-time, firing a shot past Coddington from the edge of the area.

Daniel Powell came on for the second half in place of Ash Taylor as Justin Edinburgh switched to four at the back.

The Cobblers started the second half on the front foot, Marc Richards and Matt Crooks both having efforts on goal. At the other end Marcus Maddison set Jack Marriott clean through, Coddington getting down well to make the save. The final two Cobblers changes saw Chris Long and Billy Waters introduced at the expense of Marc Richards and Matt Crooks.

Jack Marriott made it 3-0 with 75 minutes on the clock, finishing cooly when one-on-one with Coddington.

Alex Revell pulled a goal back, heading in from a Billy Waters corner, only for Marcus Maddison to restore Posh’s three goal lead from the penalty spot in stoppage time.

Ticket arrangements for Saturday's game

25 August 2017

Northampton Town welcome Peterborough United to Sixfields on Saturday.

Tickets for the game will be on sale on arrival to home supporters only. Please visit the main ticket office if you are looking to purchase tickets.

If collecting pre-ordered match tickets, please visit the ticket point opposite the main entrance, if collecting season tickets please visit the main ticket office.

Please note that tickets for forthcoming games and season tickets are still on sale, but for the hour before kick off the ticket office will be selling Peterborough United match tickets only.

Remember, you can beat the queues by buying match tickets via ntfcdirect.co.uk and printing your tickets at home! To buy tickets online you must be logged in and have purchased tickets online from us before.

As part of increased security measures, a 100% search policy will be in operation. Because of this, supporters are advised to arrive as early as possible. Turnstiles will be open from the earlier time of 12.30pm.

Three points isn't the only priority on Saturday, making sure everyone goes home safe is the most important result.

Northampton Town have been working closely with the police and the EFL, over the summer, to review security at Sixfields. Now we are asking you to do your bit.

Following the dreadful Manchester Arena bombing in May, stadium managers from clubs have been briefed by counter terrorism police.

It is vital that everyone - players, staff and supporters - remain vigilant and report any concerns to stewards or police.

Attacks might be rare, and the chance of you being caught up in one unlikely, but the message is #ActionCountersTerrorism.

Here's a quick reminder of what you can do to help keep yourself and others safe:
• Arrive early, allowing more time for security checks
• Minimise what you carry, fewer bag searches will speed up entry to the ground
• Be vigilant at all times and if you see anything suspicious, tell a steward right away
• If you see anything that could pose an immediate threat to safety, call 999
• In an emergency, listen to the Public Address instructions and follow them
• If told to evacuate, do so immediately, do not wait around to film events on your mobile
• Move right away from the stadium as quickly as possible for your safety and to allow clear access for any emergency vehicles
• Once you are safe, follow Northamptonshire Police on Twitter for updates
