Defender Dominic Revan, on-loan from Aston Villa, made his Northampton Town debut as boss Jon Brady made seven changes for the Papa John’s Trophy fixture against Walsall.

On a blustery night at Sixfields the Saddlers, managed by one-time Cobblers player Matt Taylor, scored an early goal, Emmanuel Osadebe slotting home after being played in by Brendan Kiernan.

Dylan Connolly had his appeal for a penalty turned down after a challenge by Alfie Bates saw the winger go down in the area before George Miller, under pressure from Revan, saw a shot saved by Jonny Maxted.

Mitch Pinnock curled a free-kick just over the bar, Jordan Flores had a shot blocked and Kion Etete headed wide as the Cobblers pressed in vain for an equaliser before half-time.

Connolly and Pinnock combined to set up a chance for Etete at the start of the second half but the on-loan Spurs striker was denied by a good save from Jack Rose. The Saddlers keeper was also tested by Pinnock and Flores saw an effort deflected behind before Brady made a triple change, bringing on Max Dyche, Shaun McWilliams and Benny Ashley-Seal.

The Cobblers were awarded a penalty when Etete was brought down by Manny Monthe and Dylan Connolly stepped up to score from the spot, sending Rose the wrong way. Tyrese Shade then had a chance to restore the visitors lead but failed to find the target after being played in on goal one-on-one with Maxted.

Etete was denied a late winner when Rose saved with his legs and as in the Cobblers first group game against Forest Green Rovers there was to be a penalty shoot-out to determine which side would pick up an additional point.
