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."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
