George Cox, signed on loan from Brighton at the start of the week, made his debut as the Cobblers took on in-form Carlisle United. Aaron Pierre, making his 50th appearance for the club, captained the side in the absence of the injured Ash Taylor.

Sam Hoskins had a shot blocked at close range and Jack Bridge curled a free-kick just wide in a bright start from the Cobblers. Adam Collin made a good save from Andy Williams before a quick Carlisle counter-attack found Hallam Hope well-placed in front of goal but the one-time Cobblers loanee failed to find the target.

Cox, looking bright on his debut, curled a free-kick over the bar and Jack Sowerby tested David Cornell after combining with Hope. The Cobblers keeper pulled off a fine save to push away a fierce effort from Jamie Devitt, Pierre then alert to block the follow-up effort from Danny Grainger.

Shaun McWilliams saw a shot saved by Collin as the first half ended goalless.

The Cobblers made the breakthrough early in the second half, Jack Bridge firing the ball home after Hoskins' initial effort from Shay Facey’s cross had been blocked.

Centre-back Anthony Gerrard headed over from a free-kick in a half-chance for Carlisle while a deflected effort from Hoskins nearly fell kindly for Bridge. .

It wasn’t long before Jack Bridge did have his second goal of the afternoon though, Sam Foley providing the assist as the Cobblers doubled their lead. Junior Morias and Daniel Powell then came on in a double change for the Cobblers with Connor Simpson on for Carlisle.

Bridge turned provider to set up the Cobblers third goal, playing the ball through to Junior Morias who kept his cool to finish with aplomb. Debutant Cox then received a standing ovation as he was replaced by David Buchanan.

Substitute Simpson spurned a good chance to pull a goal back for Carlisle and the Cobblers closed the game out to claim an impressive 3-0 victory against a side who started the day fifth in Sky Bet League 2 on the back of six straight wins.

Car parking update.

Three points isn't the only aim 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 to review security. Now we are asking you to do your bit.

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

POLITE NOTICE: Supporters are reminded that only food and drink purchased within the stadium should be consumed on the stadium premises please. Thank you.
