Ricky Holmes scored the only goal of the game at Sixfields Stadium as Daggers dropped into the bottom two of League Two.

Although the match ended with only one goal scored, the hosts could have added to their tally as they missed numerous chances in both halves.

Mark Cousins (6) – Although the hosts were more dominant Cousins wasn’t called upon too many times, but did most things well.

Damian Batt (5) – Right-back returned to team in place of injured Matt Partridge and struggled. He made rash challenge for yellow card and looked off the pace.

Ayo Obileye (7) – Charlton Athletic youngster coped manfully with Marc Richards and won his fair share in the air. Another top display.

Scott Doe (7) – A typical performance from stand-in skipper full of commitment and desire. He was impressive again, although was sold a dummy for Cobblers goal.

Jack Connors (6) – Solid from youngster, who continues to improve with more games he plays. One vital interception in the first half was crucial to keep it goalless at half time.

Alex Jakubiak (5) – 18-year-old made his first start, but couldn’t make impression he would like. He showed glimpse of his talent with exciting dribble in first half, but couldn’t get on ball enough.

Billy Bingham (5) – Midfielder wasn’t able to get on the ball and dictate play like he usually does. Pushed a little further forward, he struggled against Northampton’s midfield.

Joss Labadie (5) – Quiet performance from Labadie, who couldn’t help turn midfield battle in Daggers favour.

Andre Boucaud (6) – Best of midfield trio. He did a decent job of protecting the back-four and passed the ball well. One long range pass to Rhys Murphy in the second half was exquisite.

Ashley Hemmings (5) – Winger cut inside a couple of times to good effect, but couldn’t get on the ball enough and struggled to make impact.

Rhys Murphy (5) – Forward had Daggers two only notable chances of the match and failed to make the most of either opportunity. Caught offside too many times as well.

Substitutes:

Jamie Cureton, for Murphy 65. (6) – Work hard during his cameo appearances, but Northampton’s intent meant he wasn’t on the ball enough.

Ade Yusuff, for Jakubiak 65. (6) – Similar to Cureton worked hard, but couldn’t make an impression as Daggers were forced to defend.

Ashley Chambers, for Hemmings 82.
