Carter had point to prove

Northampton Town midfielder Darren Carter says he is ready to prove himself again after being dropped by the Cobblers earlier in the season. The 30-year-old has been recalled to the first team by caretaker manager Andy King and scored his first goal in 18 appearances against Newport. Carter told BBC Radio Northampton: "I was disappointed because I've come to the club to have a great season. "I had a point to prove and I'm playing to try to stay in the team."
