Adams curled a shot over the bar and Krysiak saved a John Marquis header as the Cobblers started the second half on the offensive.
Chris Wilder made his first change of the afternoon just before the hour mark, Alfie Potter coming on for Hoskins.
Liam Walsh went close with a free-kick while Adams couldn’t quite convert a volley after another well-worked Cobblers move.
