James Constable put the hosts ahead at the Kassam Stadium and after Clive Platt climbed off the bench to level, fellow substitute Jon-Paul Pittman hit the winner.

Clarke Carlisle saw red late on for the Cobblers as he picked up a second yellow.

Boothroyd said: "We're disappointed with the result but I've got to give credit to the opposition as they came at us strongly.

"I've also got to give my players for the way they came back."

"We've been on a good run ourselves, so this is a bit of a reality check for us."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
