Manager Gary Johnson has left Northampton by mutual consent, the npower League Two side have confirmed.

The board decided to act following Saturday's 1-0 FA Cup first-round defeat by Blue Square Bet Premier promotion hopefuls Luton at Kenilworth Road.

Johnson, 56, took over at Sixfields in March 2011 when he replaced Ian Sampson, but has overseen six defeats in their last seven games in all competitions and leaves with the club sitting 20th in the table.
