HOLMES AT NORTHAMP­TON’S HEART

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

NORTHAMP­TON look like a team with one foot in League One. They should have been awarded a penalty early on but Chris Wilder’s men did not let that af­fect the rest of their day as they went in pur­suit of records.

They pushed con­stantly for a win­ner, but they were let off off the hook by Wy­combe’s poor fin­ish­ing be­fore Danny Rose put the Cob­blers in front, a goal which de­servedly claimed a 119-year-old club record.

Ricky Holmes was in sparkling form for the home side, cre­at­ing chance af­ter chance, and he re­ceived a stand­ing ova­tion from a sold-out Sixfields. Northamp­ton now sit ten points clear at the top of the ta­ble and in this omi­nous form, rel­e­ga­tion bat­tlers York City must be look­ing ahead to Tues­day night with some trep­i­da­tion.
