Northampton Town will play in League One next season, whenever that might be, and rarely can a win in this fixture have been so comprehensive.
This was a brutal, utterly convincing disposal of an Exeter side who were simply overwhelmed throughout. First-half goals from Ryan Watson and Callum Morton always looked like being enough, especially when Dean Moxey was sent off, but when Sam Hoskins and Andy Williams added further blows it seemed a fairer reflection. Keith Curle’s side return to the third tier after two years away; for Exeter, it is a third defeat at this stage in four seasons.
