Northampton 0-1 Blackpool

A dramatic late winner from John Murphy ended Northampton's unbeaten start to the season as Blackpool snatched victory

Murphy struck three minutes into injury time to grab all three points for Blackpool who had earlier had two penalty appeals turned down.

But Northampton can count themselves unlucky after Chris Hargreaves struck both uprights in quick succession late in the first half.

Marco Gabbiadini came closest to maintaining his impressive scoring spree in the second half but with both sides looking at a point apiece, Murphy popped up to grab all three for the visitors.


Northampton: Harper, Marsh, Sampson, Burgess, Spedding, Gill, Harsley, Trollope, Hargreaves, Gabbiadini, Forrester. Subs: McGregor, Carruthers, Abbey, Asamoah, Morison.

Blackpool: Barnes, O'Kane, Peter Clarke, Hughes, Jaszczun, Bullock, Wellens, Southern, Coid, Murphy, Dalglish. Subs: Taylor, Walker, Collins, Chris Clarke, Theoklitos.

Referee: P Joslin (Nottinghamshire)
