Shaun McWilliams and Akin Odimayo came into the Cobblers side for the trip to top of the table Stevenage as Jon Brady switched to a central back three. Ben Fox missed the game through suspension while top goalscorer Sam Hoskins, Tyler Magloire and Josh Eppiah remained sidelined through injury. Former Cobblers striker Danny Rose started for Stevenage.

In a dramatic start to the game, the Cobblers were awarded a penalty with only 30 seconds played when Louis Appere was brought down in the area by Terence Vancooten. Appere dusted himself down to take the penalty which he dispatched with aplomb.

Mitch Pinnock drove a shot just wide from the edge of the area and Taye Ashby-Hammond made a good save from Sam Sherring as the Cobblers, who were showing no signs of letting up, had an appeal for a second penalty turned down by referee Geoff Eltringham.

Stevenage manager Steve Evans was sent to the stands after being shown two yellow cards in rapid succession but the home side were back on level terms on 35 minutes, Danny Rose equalising against the run of play.

The home side then had a chance to go in front just before half-time but Dan Sweeney headed over from Alex Gilbey’s free kick.

Jamie Reid shot straight at Lee Burge and also had a goal ruled out for off-side in the opening stages of the second half while for the Cobblers Ali Koiki shot wide and Kieron Bowie had an effort deflected behind following a good counter attack and flick on by Appere.

Max Dyche replaced Odimayo in the Cobblers first change of the afternoon with Stevenage bringing on one time Cobblers loanee Luke Norris for fellow frontman Reid.

Kieron Bowie restored the Cobblers lead on 82 minutes, the Fulham loanee scoring on the half-volley after being played in by substitute Danny Hylton.

Stevenage weren’t behind for long though and it was soon 2-2, Alex Gilbey getting the final touch from a corner.

The drama wasn’t over though and less than two minutes later the Cobblers were ahead for a third time, Shaun McWilliams volleying home after some good work by Pinnock and Hylton in the build-up.

Hylton had a chance to make it 4-2 in stoppage time but slid his shot wide and the Cobblers striker wasn’t to see the game out after being shown a straight red card for a push on a Stevenage defender.

The ten men managed to see the final few minutes of injury time out however to seal an impressive victory for the Cobblers and end league leaders Stevenage’s 13-match winning home run.
