Half Time - Notts County 0-1 Northampton Town

Notts are booed off the team at half time. It's not a very entertaining game and Town are on top.

County's first real attempt on goal comes from Hackworth, he forces a save from Northampton goalie, Keith Welch.

County's marking is dreadful and Town continue to attack on 24 minutes. Parkin just misses a chance from a free kick.
