Paul Lewis and Dylan Connolly came into the Cobblers side for the trip to Salford City, replacing Mitch Pinnock and Kion Etete. Former Cobbler Jordan Turnbull started for Salford.

There was an early chance for Salford from a corner when Turnbull’s header across goal found Brandon Thomas-Asante but his shot from point blank range was well kept out by Liam Roberts. Tom King was then forced into a save at the other end when Jack Sowerby and Ali Koiki combined to play in Danny Rose. King then made a good block on the edge of the area as Sam Hoskins closed in on goal.

The Cobblers had been pressing and they took the lead on 16 minutes, Paul Lewis heading home after a Hoskins long throw was flicked on.

Rose had a shot blocked as the Cobblers looked for a quick second goal but it was the home side who struck next, Matthew Lund scoring on the half-volley from the edge of the area from Tom Elliott's knock back.

Roberts saved comfortably from Thomas-Asante towards the end of the first half which ended with Hoskins appealing for a penalty after going down under a challenge.

The Cobblers survived a goalmouth scramble as Salford started the second half on the offensive before Jon Brady made a double change, Mitch Pinnock and Nicke Kabamba on for Shaun McWilliams and Dylan Connolly.

In a second half of few clear cut chances it was the Cobblers who regained the lead on 77 minutes, substitute Mitch Pinnock heading home Aaron McGowan’s inch-perfect cross from close range

Salford weren’t done though and the game ended 2-2, Ash Eastham scoring from close range in stoppage time to snatch a point for the home side.
