Fleetwood Town manager Graham Alexander thinks the timing of the Cobblers’ goals was crucial as his side recorded their first loss in six games.

Town ran out 3-1 winners for the second week in a row to continue their good run of form, which has seen them climb to ninth in the npower League Two table.

Jake Robinson, Clive Platt and an own goal from Alex Marrow gave the Cobblers a 3-0 lead before Jamie Allen scored a late goal from an exquisite half volley after a defensive mistake from Clarke Carlisle.
