Bournemouth   0 - 2   Northampton

Bournemouth 0 - 2 Northampton

Bournemouth 0-2 Northampton

Northampton made it five games unbeaten with a battling win over promotion-chasing Bournemouth at Dean Court.

The Cherries started well in pursuit of a third consecutive win but Luke Guttridge gave Northampton the lead with a drilled finish past Shwan Jalal.

And, just 10 minutes later, midfielder Ryan Gilligan doubled the Cobblers' lead, giving Jalal no chance with a thumping finish into the top corner.

Striker Brett Pitman wasted the Cherries' best chance after the break.


Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told BBC Solent:

"I think we missed Warren Cummings. He's an experienced left-back, the only one in the squad. And, when you lose someone from a specialist position, it's difficult to replace them.

"It was really tough to break them down.

"I thought they defended very well and made it difficult for us. But we've got to look at ourselves and be braver at home."

Northampton Town manager Ian Sampson tells BBC Radio Northampton:

"We defended well as a team, especially in the second half. We made it difficult and we handled Steve Fletcher well.

"Ryan Gilligan has scored eight now, so we've got a goal-scoring midfielder. Our finishing looked very good today.

"To get a win is important. In the context of the season, we've got momentum going so we'll take it into the next game."
