Brilliant save when he got down in a flash to thwart Jay at 1-0, just minutes before Cobblers doubled their lead. Also reacted well to keep out Forte's header, only for Martin to net the rebound. Not troubled after that... 8
Looked like Zorro, played like Charlie Goode. Face mask didn't seem have any impact on his performance as he was reliable and mostly error-free again. Been a big reason behind Town's defensive improvement... 7

Largely unruffled at the back, keeping things simple in the tricky conditions and easily containing City's attacking threat. Switched off for a second to allow Martin to pull one goal back... 7
Inching towards double figures for the season as he just about bundled in his seventh on Saturday. The skipper was an absolute rock at the back too, winning virtually every aerial duel he contested... 8
One lung-busting forward run from one penalty box to the other was the highlight of a typically steady display. Tackled well, and even blazed a shot over from 35 yards... 7
Looks so comfortable and at home in midfield that it's easy to forget he's a centre-back by trade. Constantly got the better of his City counterparts as Cobblers took command in the middle and from there they dominated... 7
Must have covered every blade of grass such was his infectious energy and relentless running. Town's driving force in midfield as he won tackles, made interceptions and kept everything under control... 8
Good cross for Sordell to hit the bar, with Pierre netting the rebound. Quality wasn't always there as he often hit the first man with his crosses, but can't doubt his endeavour or work ethic... 7
Looks as fit and as sharp as he's been at any stage this season. Was a real nuisance for City and gave Cobblers something to build their play around between midfield and attack... 7
His persistent work won the corner which led to Town's opening goal and he then delivered a pinpoint low cross for Williams to double the lead. Great work-rate and willingness for the 78 minutes he was on... 8 CHRON STAR MAN
Some neat touches as he led Town's press from the front. Unlucky to see his header crash off the bar before Pierre nodded in, and even more unfortunate to then be forced off... 7
Right place, right time to tap in his ninth of the season. Good reward for his hard work after replacing Sordell. Would have had a second if not for Pym's fine stop. Will now be desperate to start on Tuesday... 8
On for the final 15 minutes to help see out victory... 6
A stoppage-time replacement for O'Toole... 6
