Northampton Town continued their pre-season campaign on Saturday with a trip to Fernie Fields to take on Sileby Rangers.
Two of the Cobblers summer signings John-Joe O’Toole and Kaid Mohamed both started the game with Alex Nicholls in the squad following a 20-month injury lay-off.
On a warm and humid afternoon, Evan Horwood fired an early shot over the bar. Emile Sinclair played in David Moyo on 17 minutes but despite Moyo appearing to be brought down in the box by the Sileby keeper the referee said no penalty.
Lee Collins headed the Cobblers in front midway through the first half, the defender rising well to head home from a corner.
Town’s lead was doubled just before half-time, Ivan Toney with a dipping cross shot that beat the Sileby keeper at the far post.
