Wright: At the double for Shrews

Wright: At the double for Shrews

Mark Wright bagged a brace to set Shrewsbury on the way to a 7-2 demolition of managerless Northampton.

The Cobblers parted company with boss Gary Johnson during the week and Shrewsbury raced into a 3-0 half-time lead thanks to Wright's brace and Aaron Wildig's deflected effort.

Ben Tozer gave the hosts a fighting chance when he reduced the arrears three minutes after the restart, his 20-yard free kick going through the wall and past a rooted Chris Neal.

Cobblers stopper Sam Walker did well to deny Wright his hat-trick after the striker burst into the box, but Marvin Morgan ended any hopes of a late comeback in the 81st minute, applying a neat finish after being set up by the impressive Sean McAllister.

Adebayo Akinfenwa pulled another goal back with a curling effort in the 85th minute but substitute James Collins hit a fifth goal two minute later.

Joe Jacobson grabbed number six in stoppage time from a tight angle and Kelvin Langmead completed a miserable day for the Cobblers with an own goal just before the final whistle.
