Highlights of the Sky Bet League Two match between Northampton Town and Exeter City.

They only created one real clear chance though as Matt Jay shot straight at Liam Roberts, and it was Northampton who led at the break thanks to a superb piece of play by Pinnock.

He received possession from Sam Hoskins, skipped past a defender and thundered a brilliant low volley into the bottom corner.

Roberts superbly kept out Timothee Dieng early in the second half before Eppiah missed a great chance to double the home side's lead.
