Andy Williams replaced Marvin Sordell in the only change to the Cobblers side for the second of back-to-back home games. Sordell wasn’t risked after taking a knock to the head in the weekend win over Exeter. Newport included former Cobblers loanee Regan Poole in their starting eleven.

The Cobblers pressed for an early opening goal, Sam Hoskins seeing a shot blocked at close range by Newport defender Mark O’Brien and also going close from the subsequent corner with the Exiles goalkeeper Joe Day making a save with his legs. Jamille Matt headed against the cross bar and Padraig Amond had a shot blocked before Joss Labadie fired into the side netting in a spell of pressure for Newport.

With the half hour mark approaching the Cobblers had strong appeals for a penalty turned down, a cross from Charlie Goode appearing to strike the raised arm of Joss Labadie. A low cross from Aaron Pierre then just evaded Andy Williams as the home side again went close to an opening goal.

Daniel Powell was denied one-on-one after being played through by John-Joe O’Toole shortly before half-time but it was to remain goalless, Pierre also heading wide from a corner.`

Williams tried a shot from a tight angle in the early stages of the second half but Day was there with a strong hand to make the save. A cagey period followed before Jack Bridge replaced Williams in the Cobblers first change of the night.

Mark O’Brien spurned a half chance for the visitors, slicing his shot wide under pressure from David Cornell. Matt then had a chance from close range but the former Fleetwood striker couldn’t keep his shot down.

Joe Powell came on for the final few minutes in place of John-Joe O’Toole and the West Ham United loanee was to make some impact on proceedings, smashing a volley in to the top corner from fully 25-yards to clinch the Cobblers fourth straight victory with a goal worthy of winning any game.

Buying or collecting tickets on arrival? Details here

12 March 2019

Tickets for Tuesday's game against Newport County at the PTS Academy Stadium (7.45pm kick off) are now on sale from the ticket office and ntfcdirect.co.uk

Tickets remain on sale and they will be available on arrival.

Tickets can be purchased ahead of arrival via ntfcdirect.co.uk.

On Tuesday, please visit the main ticket office if you are looking to purchase tickets on arrival.

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

Please note that tickets for forthcoming home and away games are on sale, but for the hour before kick off the ticket office will be selling Newport County match tickets only.

Remember, you can beat the queues by buying match tickets via ntfcdirect.co.uk and printing your tickets at home!

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 6.45pm.

Three points isn't the only aim on Tuesday, 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.
