Marc Richards
Northampton Town's Marc Richards scored his 12th goal of the season in all competitions against Yeovil

Northampton Town got their first win under the ownership of Kelvin Thomas, as they beat Yeovil Town and extended their unbeaten run to eight matches.

The Glovers had the opportunity to go in front after a Josh Sheehan cross but Northampton counter-attacked and Lawson D'Ath slotted into an empty net.

Chris Wilder's side got their second goal as Marc Richards headed home Nicky Adams' delivery.

Yeovil pressed but Harry Cornick saw his header hit the crossbar.

On Thursday, Thomas completed his takeover of the club from previous chairman David Cardoza.
