Match Preview: Stevenage vs Northampton

21 October 2022

First-place Boro welcome third-place Cobblers to The Lamex Stadium tomorrow for a crucial clash in Sky Bet League Two…

Steve Evans’ side sit top of Sky Bet League Two after fourteen games, collecting ten wins. Despite scoring three less than Northampton in league fixtures, Stevenage have conceded just eleven compared to The Cobblers’ fourteen. Last weekend, Boro travelled to Kent and picked up a point against Evans’ former side Gillingham.

Northampton Town supporters would’ve felt hard done by at the end of last season, as on the final day Bristol Rovers’ 7-0 win over Scunthorpe denied the Cobblers automatic promotion to Sky Bet League One. This season Jon Brady’s side are undoubtedly one of the favourites for promotion and will prove to be a threat to Boro’s thirteen-game win streak at The Lamex Stadium.

So far this campaign, Northampton have earned eight wins from fourteen, as well as three draws and three losses. Most recently, The Cobblers travelled to East London and picked up a hard-earned draw against second-placed Leyton Orient.

Jon Brady took over as permanent Northampton boss in May 2021 after spending five years as a coach in the club’s academy. Brady featured for Stevenage as a player in the early 2000s, making over fifty appearances.

Boro and the Cobblers have met on fifteen occasions in the past, with Northampton proving to be somewhat of a ‘bogey team’ for the Hertfordshire outfit. The Cobblers have won twelve of the fifteen contests, with Stevenage winning just one.

That victory came in the 2014/15 campaign as goals from Chris Whelpdale and Simon Walton contributed to a 2-1 win at The Lamex Stadium. The first ever meeting between the sides was back in 2005 as a Non-League Boro held a Football League Northampton to a 2-2 draw, earning a replay in the FA Cup Second Round.

Geoff Eltringham has been appointed as Match Referee for tomorrow’s fixture with Andrew Aylott and Greg Read as his Assistants as well as Neil Hair as Fourth Official. Eltringham has officiated just three matches so far this campaign, handing out eight yellow cards.

Match Reports

Report: Stevenage 2-3 Northampton

22 October 2022

Northampton Town walk away the victors in a thrilling top of the table clash at The Lamex Stadium...

A bumper crowd turned up to The Lamex Stadium to witness a top of the table clash, with third-placed Northampton Town standing in the way of league leaders Stevenage. Steve Evans named three changes from last week’s draw in Gillingham as Jake Taylor, Kane Smith and Michael Bostwick replaced Jake Reeves, Luther James-Wildin and the suspended Jordan Roberts.

After just twenty-two seconds, Northampton earned themselves a penalty after a late Terence Vancooten challenge. Louis Appere stepped up and struck it past Taye Ashby-Hammond’s right to give Northampton the lead within just a minute. Stevenage were now forced to go off-script in order to get the result they wished for.

Boro were growing into the game slightly, but it was The Cobblers who got the next chance of the game. Mitch Pinnock raced through the centre of the park before taking aim and firing just wide of the post.

Northampton were not slowing down as they searched for a second. Appeals for another penalty were heard loud and clear from the away end, before Taye Ashby-Hammond was forced to deny a low strike.

Less than half an hour in, Boro boss Steve Evans was shown two yellow cards in the space of two minutes and was subsequently sent to the stands for the remainder of the match.

About seven minutes later, Stevenage found an equaliser. Jake Taylor carried the ball from midfield before sending Danny Rose through on goal, and despite pressure from the defender and goalkeeper, the Boro striker slotted it past Lee Burge to level the scoring and liven The Lamex crowd.

Stevenage looked like a team with intent in the final stages of the half as the home crowd were right behind them. Kane Smith’s speed and reactions earned Boro a free-kick on the right wing. It was Alex Gilbey who whipped in a pin-point cross, with Dan Sweeney’s header flying just over the bar.

Boro managed to create one final chance in the first half as Alex Gilbey received the ball towards the left-hand side, before cutting it onto his right and striking low and hard past the post.

Stevenage came out for the second half full of energy ahead of a huge forty-five minutes. Saxon Earley was replaced by Max Clark five minutes into the half to get some fresh legs on the left-hand side.

Boro supporters around the ground believed their side had taken the lead before the hour mark. Jamie Reid received the ball inside the Cobblers area before firing into the far bottom corner past Lee Burge, but the linesman’s flag was up for offside. Jamie Reid was then substituted for Luke Norris ten minutes later.

The Cobblers remained on the back foot as Stevenage searched for a potential winner. Max Clark delivered a delightful cross into the box, but Dan Sweeney headed over.

Down the other end, Northampton appealed for a penalty once again, claiming that Alex Gilbey had hit the ball with his hand in the area. A corner was given instead but the attack ended with a headed effort over the bar.

With ten minutes remaining, The Cobblers took the lead. The ball fell to Kieron Bowie on the edge of the area, as his effort deflected past Taye Ashby-Hammond and into the back of the net.

Just minutes later, Stevenage found an equaliser to the delight of the home crowd. Max Clark’s corner was headed at the back post by Carl Piergianni before the ball fell to Alex Gilbey to whack home.

There was absolutely no time to rest at The Lamex Stadium as Northampton went straight up the other end to take back the lead. Mitch Pinnock managed to cross the ball to Shaun McWilliams at the back post who tapped it in.

Tensions were high as the Fourth Official indicated seven more minutes to be played. Danny Hylton was handed a red card for putting his palm to Dan Sweeney’s face.

The Cobblers managed to see out the game as Stevenage fell to a home defeat for the first time since April.
