Accrington Stanley   0 - 3   Northampton

Summer signing Steve Guinan ended Northampton's 493 minute goal drought as Stanley missed a late penalty.

Guinan rifled the ball into the top of the net from Ryan Gilligan's pass and Adebayo Akinfenwa soon added a second.

Phil Edwards had brought the striker down and he duly sent Alan Martin the wrong way from the spot.

Jimmy Ryan and Edwards hit the woodwork as Stanley pressed but substitute Billy McKay scored with a low shot and Ryan hit a penalty wide at the death.


Northampton manager Stuart Gray told BBC Radio Northampton:

"It's three points and now my mind is focussed on getting a home win for the home fans.

"I've been in the game long enough to know it's a results business and the results haven't been good enough.

"The players deserve all the credit for the result tonight and when they don't get the good results the manager gets it in the neck as well."
