Elated Northampton boss savours Liverpool victory

Northampton boss Ian Sampson rated the stunning Carling Cup win over Liverpool at Anfield as one of his top moments in football. The League Two side, the lowest-placed club in the competition, won 4-2 on penalties at Anfield.

"I won a play-off final at Wembley as a player for Northampton and it ranks right up there with that occasion," he said. "To be a manger and win at Anfield after only one year in the job I'm absolutely delighted, it is a particular highlight.

"Full credit to the players, they are a young team, with the attitude and desire they showed I can't praise them highly enough. We regrouped quite well after the early goal and got ourselves into some good scoring positions."
