Northampton extend unbeaten run to 22 league matches with draw at Yeovil

Champions Northampton extended their unbeaten run to a club-record 22 league matches following a 1-1 draw away at Yeovil.

Harry Cornick opened the scoring for Yeovil after just six minutes before Nicky Adams headed into an empty net 10 minutes before half-time.

Yeovil took the lead with the first meaningful chance of the match when Liam Shephard's deflected shot was looped into the air and Cornick reacted quickest to head past Adam Smith.

Northampton came close to equalising when John-Joe O'Toole volleyed just wide from six yards after a mix-up in the Yeovil box, before David Buchanan blazed the ball across the penalty area.

The Cobblers would not have long to wait, and drew level shortly before half-time when Danny Rose's cross found John Marquis, whose assist gave Adams no option but to find the net.

Adams and Marquis missed early second-half chances, before Liam Walsh almost restored Yeovil's lead when he struck the crossbar with a 25-yard free-kick.

Yeovil had a last-minute appeal for a penalty when substitute Tahvon Campbell went down under O'Toole's challenge, but referee Charles Breakspear waved away the protests.
