Alan McCormack, Chris Lines, Andy Williams, Michael Harriman and Billy Waters came into the side as Keith Curle made five changes for EFL newcomers Salford City’s first ever visit to the PTS Academy Stadium while after re-signing for the club on Friday, winger Paul Anderson was named on the bench. Vadaine Oliver was also amongst the substitutes having had his red card at Scunthorpe overturned on appeal.

Waters fired over on the half-volley and Kyle Letheren saved a Lines header as the Cobblers started brightly. Sam Hoskins also went close with a shot just wide having earlier seen an effort blocked.

Salford started to grow into the game and it needed a smart low save from David Cornell to deny Adam Rooney the opening goal.

Sam Hoskins broke the deadlock from the penalty spot ten minutes before half-time after Charlie Goode was tripped, Hoskins keeping his cool to find the bottom corner.

A dipping free-kick from Ibou Touray went over the bar in a fragmented start to the second half. A dangerous cross from Touray then just evaded an onrushing Rooney in front of goal before the same player headed wide with the visitors pressing for an equaliser.

Jordan Turnbull doubled the Cobblers lead midway through the second half following a well-worked free-kick, taken by Nicky Adams and headed back across goal by Andy Williams who himself nearly made it three moments later with a lob that went over the bar.

The Cobblers were looking to put the game to bed and Letheren made a fine save to turn behind a sumptuous free-kick from Adams before Paul Anderson, on for his second debut, volleyed just over with his first touch. Seven minutes of stoppage time were then comfortably seen out as the Cobblers collected all three points.

BUYING OR COLLECTING TICKETS ON SATURDAY? DETAILS HERE

Ticket arrangements for the visit of Salford City

18 October 2019

Tickets for Saturday's game against Salford City at the PTS Academy Stadium (3pm 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 Saturday, 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 season tickets and other match tickets are also on sale, but for the hour before kick off the ticket office will be selling Salford City match tickets only. We are expected to be very busy so if collecting tickets, please arrive early!

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 1.15pm.

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.
