Cool, Calm and Comfortable
#198
09/20/2022

The Cobblers win over Rochdale was, in the main, a comfortable affair. Apart from one chance at 1-0, Dale never threatened us and much like the midweek win over AFC Wimbledon, Jon Brady's men cruised to victory.

Ben Fox and Josh Eppiah were both named in the squad and while Sam Hoskins scored his fourth brace of the season, it was Marc Leonard's performance which lit up the faces of our support.

We discuss all this, read out some cracking listener letters from Neil's Postbag and check in with James Wiles for a report on...
