First-half goals from Ryan Cresswell and John-Joe O'Toole put Northampton on the way to a third straight success with a 3-0 victory over Newport.
The Cobblers began brightly. Cresswell saw a shot hit the crossbar in the first minute, Ricky Holmes fired just wide and Jason Taylor had a shot blocked. In between, Chris Zebroski was off target for Newport.
The early breakthrough the hosts had threatened came in the 13th minute when Cresswell headed home Joel Byrom's corner.
Mark Byrne was denied by Northampton...
