Cobblers' cup dream over

Northampton’s Town’s giant killing dream is over.

The Cobblers lost 3-1 at home to Manchester United last night in the League Cup.

Goalkeeper Adam Smith was at fault for two of the goals.

Rob Page’s side went behind but Alex Revell equalised to make it 1-1 at the break.

But, Jose Mourinho called in the big guns, brinigng on Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford – who scored another goal on another debut.

Sixfields was packed to the rafters with a record crowd watching the match.

The fourth round draw took place after the game and there’ll be another Manchester derby this season.

United will meet holders City, who picked up a 2-1 victory at Swansea.
