  • Forest visit Sixfields for Town’s fourth friendly
  • Another new trialist starts at left-back
  • Several players still isolating

FT: 0-2. Forest win out but plenty for Cobblers to be optimistic about.

78: Comical football all round, really should be 2-1 but Connolly spoons over with the goal gaping after a defensive mix-up.

77: Harriman so close to a screamer with his left, fine flying stop by Smith.

75: Pinnock and Flores now come off, Flanagan and Cross on.

67: Triple change for the Cobblers. Harriman, Nelson and Maxted replace McGowan, Guthrie and Roberts.

62: Goal Forest. 2-0. Cafu with a great finish from 25 yards.

57: Lovely finish by Kabamba but he’s offside. Looked a tight one.

54: Ooh Chukwuemeka just wide on the turn, was well picked out by Connolly.

53: Fabulous dipping strike by Lolly whistles just over. Visitors have upped the ante significantly this half.

49: Goal Forest. Taylor makes an immediate impact, rounding Roberts and tapping in.

45: Back underway. Lyle Taylor has come on for Forest.

Really enjoyed that half. Town started well and were the better side for most of it. McGowan the pick at right-back but Kabamba, Pinnock and Flores have looked bright.

HT: 0-0.

33: Ashley-Seal will have to come off now. Looks an ankle problem. Chukwuemeka on.

28: McGowan now pops up at the other end and sends in a fine cross, which Kabamba heads towards goal. Smith claws it away and then saves Ashley-Seal’s follow-up, though the striker was offside.
