Northampton's four-match losing run came to an end on Saturday afternoon with a win over AFC Wimbledon.

It's not really mattered if it's been at Sixfields or not, but it was at Sixfields that the Cobblers got back to winning way with an injury-time goals sealing a 2-0 win.

Joel Byrom went close with a freekick, which went just wide, as we started positively with Ivan Toney guilty of not doing better when he had a free header, which was straight at 'keeper James Shea.

Wimbledon's best effort saw Sean Rigg fail to hit the target before Lawson D'Ath had the ball in the net for us and then Matt Tubbs for the visitors but both were disallowed for offside.

Finally we broke the deadlock with Toney and Byrom combined before D'Ath put in a cross to Kaid Mohamed (32) who made no mistake.

Tubbs had a chance to equalise before the break, which wasn't taken with former Cobblers striker Adebayo Akinfenwa heading wide a Jack Smith's, which was his only real opportunity really.

Alex Nicholls and Emile Sinclair both came on and both had chances to seal the points before Nicholls (90) made sure of the win with his first goal for us in two-years, following us in injury-time from a D'Ath effort saved by Shea to make it two-nil.
