Northampton manager Aidy Boothroyd has praised new signing Toni Silva after their the 1-0 victory over AFC Wimbledon.

The Liverpool youngster came off the bench to set up Luke Guttridge's late winner.

Guttridge grabbed the 80th-minute goal as bottom club Northampton picked up only their second home victory of the season. Furthermore, it was enough for the Cobblers to secure their first win in 14 outings.

"I've got good contacts at Liverpool and when Toni came on he showed some Premier League quality," said Boothroyd. "He's a very good prospect, he can dribble past players and also score goals. Hopefully, he can help us get out of this position and we can help his career.

"But it wasn't just about one player. Clarke Carlisle and Luke Guttridge were outstanding but it was about the whole club, because if you walked around this place on a daily basis you would see how positive it is here.

"But it's all about getting points and now and we need to get on to the 30-point mark. We're on an upward curve and some of those teams above us are on a downward curve."
