Action stations, aaaannnd….GO !!!

Northampton Town escaped from Luton with their first win at Kenilworth Road in some 15 years to go top of the League Two table, with a pre-planned training ground manoeuvre getting the ball rolling in some style on the way to a dramatic 4-3 victory.

Indeed, having gone a goal down inside the opening 10 minutes, the Cobblers restored parity again almost immediately by successfully executed a nifty set-piece that saw a quick flurry of disguised passes completely tear the Luton defence asunder.

The ball eventually arrived at the feet of the unmarked John Joe O’Toole, who rolled a first-time finish past Mark Tyler to cap the whole thing off…

There are few more satisfying sights in football as seeing a well-drilled set-piece come off.

    That was a very nice set up, but definitely not the first time I’ve seen it… and was too appalled by the defending in the first goal to like that one: “the ball is almost going out? Let me defend it by heading it into the middle of the f*cking box…”
