Late Drama As Northampton Edge It

26 February 2013 09:58
The Cobblers once again ground out a vital home win on Tuesday night

After Saturday's narrow success against Plymouth Argyle it looked as though the Cobblers would be forced to settle for a goalless draw as an improving Bristol Rovers side came to Sixfields.

Having seen Bayo Akinfenwa substituted at half-time, boss Aidy Boothroyd saw Ben Harding score a dramatic late winner to keep Town within one point of Burton Albion and the third automatic promotion place.

The Cobblers boss will have been pleased that his side managed to do so without their top goalscorer and also that they once again scored a late goal, a positive feature of recent performances.
