Northampton 2-1 Rotherham

Goals from Chris Hackett and Alex Nicholls helped Northampton Town beat Rotherham United and claim their first win of the season.

Hackett put the Cobblers in front with a 20-yard drive after latching onto Nicholls' quick throw-in.

Ben Harding then struck the underside of the bar before Ben Pringle's deflected shot made it 1-1.

The Cobblers regained the lead when Nicholls rounded Millers keeper Scott Shearer and fired into the net.

Boothroyd hails 'best' performance

"It was certainly the best [performance] since I've been here.

"I thought we were fantastic. We had all the things you'd expect - the commitment and the work ethic.

"We also made some terrific decisions and out-footballed them in the middle of the pitch. We played and passed it really well."

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans told BBC Radio Sheffield:

Millers were robbed, says Evans

"It was a daylight robbery.

"They started brighter than us, but I think from the 25th minute mark to the 85th minute, there's [only] one team trying to play football... and that's Rotherham United.

"So it's a bitter blow to swallow, but that's footballl.

"We might go somewhere and get totally dominated and nick a winner, because that's what's happened [here]."
