A win that has mirrored the start to the season - good and solid without being spectacular.
Nouble and Watts had their best games in a Green shirt topped off with a goal apiece.
Northampton were solid and kept their shape and were difficult to break down with patience the key to winning the game.
We won 15 corners which must be some kind of recent record and corner number 14 proved to be decisive with another assist for Cooper which led to Watts tapping in the winner at the far post.
Nouble was a handful throughout with his hold up play and benefitted from a great cross from Grant to give us the lead. Big Frank the Tank is slowly becoming a crucial player for us.
I thought Canavan was at fault for Northampton's goal by not closing down the Cobblers striker and allowing a free shot.
We didn't allow this set-back to upset our rhythm and stuck to the game plan of possession football looking for an opportunity and clear pass into feet.
Jephcott wasn't in the game and perhaps his recent layoff with injury has caught up with him.
Reeves didn't shine as a second half replacement for Grant and we lost ground in midfield during the early stages of the second half.
Abraham hardly saw the ball as a late sub so he can't be judged just yet.
Mayor had a good game and was once again our creative spark.
Credit to Lowe for always sticking to Plan A, it works more often than not so why look for Plan B or C?
Overall, a win built on patience and sticking to the game plan.
Man of the match - Nouble.
