Northampton:- Ansell; Smalley, Southren; Candlin, McCoy, Coley; D.Smith, Garrett, McCulloch, Murphy, Fowler.

While it is easy to catalogue Exeter City's faults, finding a remedy remains a difficult problem. Against Northampton at St James's Park the City were unreliable in defence and unbalanced in attack. Though the team tried hard they were not good enough. Neither are replacements of the right calibre to be found in the ranks of the second eleven. Poor covering in today's game presented the Cobblers with a couple of easy chances, which were missed, before McCulloch scored the opening goal. Regan and Smith then missed for Exeter through weak shooting. Singleton was to blame for Northampton's second goal. He dived low to a shot from Fowler and missed the ball, which rebounded to McCulloch, who scored easily. When Garrett netted the third goal Exeter were already a beaten side, and Regan's successful shot came too late to make any difference.
