Ben Marshall

Ben passed a fitness test and played on the right wing as Northampton scored their first goals of the season before claiming their first victory, a 3-0 win which, according to Cobblers supporters, was harsh on their opponents.

bigcitylights from The Hotel End mesage board, who gave Marshall a 7 out of 10 for his performance, had this to say about the tricky winger:

'If I'm going to be completely critical he didn't look 100% match fit and I was surprised he wasn't withdrawn when we went 3-0 up and the other loanee Romone Rose given a go on the right.

He seemed to struggle with the small pitch at Accrington as he kept running out of room when trying to beat his full-back but improved as the game wore on. Don't get me wrong, he didn't have a bad game, he just wasn't as impressive as he has been in our first couple of matches. In the second half he beat his man through pure determination on the right flank and sent balls in the area that our forwards should have put away. He put in another good shift when dropping back and defending too'.

Danzelle St.Louis-Hamilton

The giant keeper had a great game, helping Vauxhall Motors to a 2-1 home victory over Fleetwood Town, the Manchester City of the Blue Square North, to keep up their decent start to the season. Although the clean sheet evaded Danzelle he can be very satisfied in the knowledge that without him inbetween the sticks the game could well have ended very differently.

Motors supporter Cal Craig was full of praise for our young shot stopper stating:

'He was excellent. He nearly got lobbed in the early stages but just managed to tip it over, he did some great catches to stop any danger developing and pushed away a dangerous header directed at him from a corner that got cleared then late on they hit a hard and low shot which he gathered up comfortably, he generally was very solid in goal."
