Northampton 2-0 Brighton

Northampton   2 - 0   Brighton

Northampton eased into the second round of the Carling Cup thanks to two first-half goals against 10-man Brighton.

Teenager Michael Jacobs opened the scoring with his first goal in professional football by cutting inside and firing home from 15 yards out.

Billy McKay doubled the lead with a diving header at the far post from Ryan Gilligan's pinpoint cross.

Brighton had Matt Sparrow sent off for hitting out at Abdul Osman after 35 minutes and they never recovered.


Northampton manager Ian Sampson told BBC Radio Northampton:
"Obviously we were disappointed with the result on Saturday, like you are with any defeat.

"But I'm pleased for the boys. It's nice to respond in the right manner.

"Everyone did their bit. The subs that came on worked hard and everyone that started was very good tonight."

On an injury to Alan Navarro, Brighton boss Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:
"It doesn't look good. That's why you've got a squad and you've got to deal with sendings-off and injuries.

"It's a real shame for everyone because Alan is a key player for us. I hope it's nothing serious.

"It wasn't a great day really. Forget about the referee. We lost because we were not good enough. I don't look for excuses."
