Jon Brady labelled Hull City a 'Championship side in waiting' after the Cobblers slumped to a 3-0 defeat at the home of the league leaders.

Town struggled to lay a glove on the in-form Tigers as first-half goals from Callum Elder and Keane Lewis-Potter effectively put the game to bed before the break.

The visitors did a good job in limiting the damage despite Gavin Whyte's stoppage-time third.

"Hull are one hell of a side," said Brady. "They're a Championship side in waiting with the way they move the ball and everything about them.

"It looks like they're probably going to take the title. There's a long way to go but we faced a top-class side today and the one thing we didn't needed was to concede a hell of a strike after 30 minutes.

"We had to try and stay in the game and manage the game and see if we could get into half-time at 0-0, but unfortunately it wasn't to be.

"We moved the ball very slowly in the first-half, which was hugely disappointing. We came out second-half and we were a lot quicker but Hull are that good that they're on you all over the pitch and they don't give you a moment to breathe."
