League leaders Swindon Town were at the PTS for a midweek fixture as the Cobblers looked to close the gap on one of their promotion rivals. Andy Williams came back into the side to make his 600th career appearance with Chris Lines and Jordan Turnbull also recalled. Richie Wellens was a notable absentee from the dugout, the Robins boss missing the game through illness.

There was an early sight at goal for the EFL’s leading goalscorer Eoin Doyle but his shot was comfortable for David Cornell. Steven Benda made a top save to turn behind a stinging drive from Mark Marshall and Cornell again saved from Doyle but with less than half an hour played Swindon were forced into a defensive change, Tom Broadbent on for the injured Paul Caddis.

It was a tight first half and it needed another good save from Benda, this time to deny Sam Hoskins, to ensure the first half ended goalless.

Turnbull fired over from a well-worked corner at the start of the second half before Diallang Jaiyesimi had a chance to put Swindon in front but failed to connect with Michael Doughty’s cross.

Callum Morton came on for Vadaine Oliver in the Cobblers first change with Jerry Yates on for the Robins. Ryan Watson then replaced Lines with twenty minutes to play.

Williams was denied by a perfectly timed sliding tackle inside the area and not long after that Swindon made the breakthrough, Jordan Lyden heading in a left-wing cross.

Benda saved Charlie Goode’s header as the Cobblers responded to falling behind but that was the closest they came to an equaliser, the league leaders seeing the game out to claim the three points.

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 6.15pm.

A win 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.
