>Billy The Hero as Cobblers win on Boxing Day

Northampton Town 1-0 Dagenham and Redbridge
League Two
Saturday, December 26th 2009

Substitute Billy McKay was the hero at Sixfields after another game of missed penalty drama and a winning goal that crept over the goal line to hand Ian Sampson’s men a first league win since late October.

Sammo will be hoping that McKay is keen to impress as the January transfer window looms large with the Cobblers boss stressing that some players will be put up for transfer and loan in the coming month. The former Leicester man will be hoping that this strike lends his cause some hope as well as giving us a much, much needed three points.

The game was dead in the opening exchanges with both sides failing to put anything decent together in terms of goal scoring chances. It took until the thirty fifth minute for anything decent to come about when Adebayo Akinfenwa turned and shot wide of the post.

It was the Cobblers who at least managed to get something going before half time as Ryan Gilligan’s deflected shot was saved well by Tony Roberts in the Daggers’ goal but it was goalless at the break.

Dagenham came out of the blocks better in the second half and Peter Gain’s effort was stopped by Chris Dunn, with a slight deflection on the shot.

Bayo went close again before the visitors hit the cross bar mid way through the second half as Adam Miller rattled the woodwork. Courtney Herbert headed over at the other end before Andy Holt was penalised for hand ball inside the area and Dagenham had a golden chance to take the lead from the spot. But Mark Arber skied the penalty and the game remained 0-0 going into the final stages.

The stage was then set for an unlikely final as substitute McKay’s powerful shot crept in past Roberts in the 88th minute and we had pulled out a win from the hat to finally give us some winter cheer!

There was still time for Andy Holt to be sent off for his second bookable offence but there was no time for the Daggers to get back in the game. After a couple of months of discontent we’ll take any sort of win at the moment and particularly against an in form Dagenham side.

Luck shone on Sixfields this afternoon and my word have we been waiting for that!

  1. >[b] What's the Difference Between an Air Mattress and Regular Mattresses? [/b]Are you starting to shop for stuff for your new home? Whether you have a relatively small place or you are still saving up for the right pieces to fill up your first home or apartment then it will be wise to invest in a air mattress to help you sort out your concerns on whether to settle on getting a so-so bed for the meantime or not.If you do not have a baby yet and you are comfortable with having to sleep on just a normal mattress then it surely won't be a big deal if you opt to sleep on an air mattress for the meantime. Just like the name suggests, air mattresses need to get pumped with air first before you will be able to use it. Now while this might make you a bit doubtful about the durability of an air mattress compared to a regular type of mattress, there are loads of of air bed these days that provide great quality without being too pricey.One of the more obvious advantages of buying an air mattress compared to the usual kind of mattress is that if you are currently having problems when it comes to storage space and you need to make more room in your home, then all you really need is to take out the air from the air mattress and just neatly pack it away for storage. It really is as simple as that, bet you can't do that with a regular kind of mattress right?From affordability to being able to pack it up with much ease, another thing that you will like about air mattresses is the flexibility as it can be easily used for just about any "lounging" need. If you need a makeshift bed for your home, then you can either use a normal air mattress or go for an air bed, which is a lot more similar to normal beds.If you have a friend or relative who suddenly wants to spend the night at your place or just needs a place to stay in for a while, then you can offer the air bed for him or her to sleep on. And if you are the one who is going to a sleep over and you want a sure spot to rest your tired self on, then you can easily pack up your bed and just use that instead of an uncomfortable sleeping bag.An air mattress is really handy to stash at home for future use. Let's say you are going on a camping trip and you want to have a bigger "bed" compared to a sleeping bag, then you can also bring along your air mattress with you on the trip. If you don't mind sharing it with somebody and if your tent will be able to fit it inside, then why not get a queen-sized air mattress so that you will be able to share it with your kids or loved one.The biggest choice of beds and mattresses on [url=http://best-beds.com]Mattresses and Beds Online Store Best-Beds.com[/url].
