Northampton Town 1
Bristol Rovers 0
With just ninety seconds remaining Northampton skipper Kelvin Langmead broke Rovers hearts with a header from close range from a long throw.
John Ward’s side had done more than enough to combat the home side’s direct brand of football and created a few half chances of their own and to lose to such a scrappy goal so near to the end of the game was rough justice.
However Ward’s team can take heart from an accomplished and disciplined performance against a side with a marvellous home record as they prepare to take on two more promotion contenders in Burton and Exeter on Saturday and Tuesday respectively.
