Peterborough United provided the opposition for the Cobblers first home pre-season friendly as the build up to the 2013/14 league season continued.
Boss Aidy Boothroyd included two new trialists in his starting eleven in the form of defender Kevin Amankwaah and striker Liam Dickinson.
Wearing the new home kit for the first time, the Cobblers players looked resplendent as the game kicked off under cloudy Sixfields skies.
Liam Dickinson went close early on but his dipping volley from 25-yards was narrowly off-target. Matt Duke made a good save down low to deny Lee Tomlin in the first real chance for Posh.
Dickinson had to be replaced on 21 minutes with fellow trialist JJ Hooper taking his place.
A diving header from Tyrone Barnett went wide while for the Cobblers, Hooper saw a shot saved by Bobby Olejnik.
