Match Thread: Northampton Town v Lincoln City


Vital 1st Team Regular
Doesn’t sound like we deserved to win, but who cares! Was always going to take some time for the new squad to gel and familiarise with the tactics. Most important thing is to get a win away from home against what will be promotion rivals. Love a smash and grab.

Sounds like Vickers has had a belter!

Look forward to hearing the post match comments.
We might have to start wearing balaclavas as part of the kit because that was daylight robbery.
That was some performance by Vickers though with the all round handling as well as the saves. Bostwick next best.

NT are quite an impressive side and will be close to the top if they learn how to shoot

Not sure when we won away on the opening day last?
Cardiff away in 1991 but struggling after that.
Our first win at sixfields too

First half awful, especially three CBs - vey hesitant and suicidal occasionally. Vickers saved us a couple of times. Second half after Matt scored Northampton lost their way for a while but came on strong again in the last 10 mins. We sat back a bit too deep for my liking, but boy did we need Josh Vickers today. He definitely influenced the game enough for us to get all three points today. Despite my prediction Northampton will be top half and some teams will get hammered by them. Crooks deserved the MoM for them and is a classy player, if a little left footed.
