Midfielder McLeod let fly with an instinctive 35-yard blast in the 68th minute which caught goalkeeper Chris Dunn off his guard to settle the tie.

It was rough on Dunn, who had pulled off two decent second-half saves from a Matt Richards free-kick and a Glenn Murray header as the Seagulls ran the show after the break.

Cobblers striker Leon Constantine was forced to clear a Colin Hawkins header from under his own crossbar but he had a good chance at the other end with a glancing header from an Andy Holt cross which drifted narrowly wide.

Northampton stepped up their search for a leveller in the closing stages but both Constantine and substitute Ian Henderson had shots blocked.
