KEITH CURLE called Northamp­ton’s vic­tory over Wi­gan an im­por­tant one af­ter they edged a five-goal thriller at the DW Sta­dium.

The vis­i­tors were two goals up in­side 21 min­utes through Ryan Wat­son and Sam Hoskins.

Joe Gar­ner pulled one back from the penalty spot, be­fore Caleb Chuk­wue­meka re­stored Northamp­ton’s two-goal ad­van­tage.

Af­ter Tom James headed in Wi­gan’s sec­ond goal, Kyle Joseph al­most equalised, only to hit a post late on.

“It’s an im­por­tant win for us,” said the Cob­blers boss.
