The Cobblers then continued to dominate, Notts couldn't get hold of the ball and couldn't string passes together. Garden was the busier of the two keepers - Parkin misses a free kick and Gabbiadini is running rings and making the Notts look defence looked like lost sheep.
At the interval Notts County went behind one nil and they could have come back into the match. They didn't because things went from bad to worse.
In the second half Northampton had a penalty, Ian Richardson brung down Marco Gabbiadini in the area and he recieves a yellow card. Jamie Forrester stepped up and scores confidently. Notts County are staring relegation in the face, they are behind against Northampton Town fellow companions in destress. 2-0 to the Cobblers, the white flag is waving.
It's a terrible baptism of fire for Manager Bill Dearden he loses his fourth consecutive Notts County game. But it's not him to blame surely - get a complete revamp in the playing staff and quick otherwise we are destined for Division three. It's unreal, but it's true.
Final Score - Magpies 0-3 Cobblers
