Rob Page named an unchanged side for the re-arranged Emirates FA Cup second round tie at Stourbridge, the original fixture nine days previous having been postponed due to a frozen pitch at the War Memorial Ground. Under 18s striker Joe Iaciofano was named on the bench.
Chris Lait fired just wide after a one-two with strike partner Luke Benbow as the home side carved out an early opening.
Lewin Nyatanga headed over from a Matt Taylor corner while it took a terrific save from David Cornell to keep out a Dan Scarr header on the half hour mark.
Cornell saved comfortably when Kayelden Brown maybe should have done better with a chance on 39 minutes, the non-league side continuing to pose a real threat. The first half ended with the Cobblers going close to opening the scoring however, Paul Anderson fizzing a shot narrowly wide from distance.
