Cobblers See Of Stoke Youngsters

Northampton's preparations for the new season, one that Aidy Boothroyd says they're not ready for, were given a boost with a win over Stoke.

In the main it was predominately a development squad sent to Sixfields by Stoke, however Jermaine Pennant was a high-profile name on display from the Premier League side.

JJ Hooper's early goal was enough to send the Cobblers into the break one-up.

It didn't take long for the hosts to extend the second half lead when Ben Heneghan put through his own net. Stoke had the last say but Marcel Barrington's late goal was a mere consolation with Northampton winning 2-1.

Northampton: Matt Duke, Kevin Amankwaah (Tyler Reeve 89), Ben Tozer, Lee Collins, Joe Widdowson, Ian Morris (Ivan Toney 74), Gary Deegan (David Artell 74), Darren Carter (Ishmel Demontagnac 62), Josh Moreman (David Moyo 68), Roy O'Donovan (Danny Emerton 58), JJ Hooper (sub Claudio Dias 74).
Subs: Ben Heath, Connor Roberts.
