New loan signing Idris Kanu made his Northampton Town League Two debut in a 1-0 win over Salford City on Saturday.

Paul Lewis scored the only goal for the promotion hopefuls side after they returned to winning ways with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Salford.

As a result, the host stayed fifth in the League Two standings on 45 points from 25 games played. 

Debutant Kanu went close early in the second half before Smith had Salford’s best chance of the game from a free-kick, but again he was thwarted by Roberts.

Kanu replaced Chanka Zimba in the starting line-up, with Eppiah named on the bench.

Jon Brady was pleased with the performance of his team as he reflected on Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Salford City.

“It’s nice to get back to winning ways,” he said.

“I feel it’s three and a half good performances in a row and we played some really strong football in the first half.”
