Ivan Toney's third league goal of the season gave Northampton victory against Morecambe.

Northampton dominated the early stages of the game, and were rewarded when Toney headed in from eight yards.

Morecambe improved in the second half, but Paul Mullin could only drag wide after running in on goal.

Jordan Archer was forced into a late save when he tipped over from Alan Goodall's looping header, as Morecambe suffered a third successive defeat.
