Northampton   1 - 2   Rochdale

Northampton Town v Rochdale

Northampton 1-2 Rochdale

Will Buckley scored a fine winning goal to give Rochdale their first away victory of the season.

Chris O'Grady converted Buckley's low cross to put the Lancashire side ahead.

Buckley and O'Grady had chances to double the lead before Ryan Gilligan equalised with a shot which squirmed under goalkeeper Kenny Arthur.

Four minutes later, Buckley cut inside and, from the edge of the area, fired into the top corner to condemn the Cobblers to a fourth straight defeat.


Cobblers caretaker manager Ian Sampson told BBC Radio Northampton:

"The second half, I thought we did ever so well, and got back into the game. Everything we asked they gave me.

"First 20 minutes, we looked like a team short on confidence. We probably showed them too much respect.

"Statistically, plenty of shots, so in that respect I'm quite happy.

"I thought we switched off for their second goal, as we didn't show composure once we'd equalised."
