McKay: Scored the sixth

Northampton hit six goals for the first time ever at Sixfields as they demolished high-flying Crewe 6-2 on Tuesday.

Six different players got on the scoresheet as the Cobblers came from behind to leave Crewe shell-shocked and improved their own chances of a charge towards the play-offs.

Crewe took a fifth-minute lead when Northampton goalkeeper Chris Dunn fumbled a shot from Ajay Leitch-Smith. But that was as good as it got for the visitors as new signing Shaun Harrod equalised six minutes later on his debut, beating Rhys Taylor from close range, and Michael Jacobs put Northampton ahead from a 14th-minute free kick which found its way into the bottom corner.

Crewe missed a great chance to draw level in teh 35th minute from the penalty spot. But Dunn redeemed himself when he saved well to keep out Ashley Westwood's spot-kick. And it got worse for Crewe a minute before the break when Dean Beckwith headed home a Josh Walker corner,

Two goals in three minutes after the restart all but ended the contest. Skipper Andy Holt fired home a minute into the second half and two minutes later Abdul Osman hit the fifth with a long range strike.

Substitute Billy McKay finally hit number six in the 80th minute after David Artell had trodden on the ball before Crewe substitute Antoni Sarcevic grabbed a lat consolation with two minutes of normal time left.
