Northampton   2 - 3   Shrewsbury

Northampton 2 - 3 Shrewsbury

Northampton 2-3 Shrewsbury

Jon Taylor scored a late winner for promotion-chasing Shrewsbury as Northampton started life under new manager Gary Johnson with a defeat.

Michael Jacobs opened the scoring for the Cobblers within six minutes with a 20-yard drive but David Davies levelled with a good finish from inside the box.

Jacobs put Northampton ahead again from range but James Collins made it 2-2 from the edge of the area.

And Taylor won it for the Shrews with a half-volley from 18 yards out.

Johnson was named Cobblers boss on Friday following Ian Sampson's sacking on Wednesday.

Northampton have now failed to win in their last eight games, while Shrewsbury's win was their first success in three.


Northampton Town manager Gary Johnson tells BBC Radio Northampton:
"We went into the lead twice with two great goals, but looked fragile when we were defending as a team.

"We've got to make sure we finish the stronger, especially when we're at home. When the boys got tired, they started giving the ball away.

"Michael Jacobs is a match-winner with that ability. We needed him on the ball a bit more. He's still learning but when you've got technique like that, you've got to get him in dangerous areas."

Shrewsbury Town manager Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire:
"It was a great result for us, I could see it breaking our hearts again with those two unstoppable Northampton goals.

"It was never going to be easy with a new manager coming into place. Perhaps it was a good time to play Northampton and get them out of the way because they will be a threat."
