Morecambe 1-1 Northampton

Kelvin Langmead earned promotion-chasing Northampton a last-gasp point with a header a minute from time.

The defender nodded into the empty net after an Ishmel Demontagnac free-kick hit the left-hand post and rebounded into his path.

The Shrimps took the lead through in-form striker Jack Redshaw, who curled a delightful effort past Lee Nicholls.

Northampton hit the woodwork three times with Chris Hackett, Langmead and Ben Harding all denied.


Northampton Town manager Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Radio Northampton:

"That was a great game. (It would have been unfair) If we hadn't have got anything out of that - after hitting the post four times.

"We've played ever so well. I thought we were strong.

"We talked before the game about making sure we were still in the game come the last 20 minutes, we didn't quite do that.

"But I thought we could have nicked it and deserved all three points."
