Yeovil Town 1-1 Northampton Town

Nicky Adams
Nicky Adams' goal ensured Northampton's last league loss is still their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Portsmouth on 19 December

League Two champions Northampton Town set a new club record as they extended their unbeaten run to 22 matches after a draw at Yeovil Town.

The Glovers took an early lead as Harry Cornick reacted quickest to head home after Liam Shephard's deflected shot looped into the air.

John-Joe O'Toole and David Buchanan almost levelled before Nicky Adams finally found the net for Northampton.

Adams converted John Marquis's pass to keep up Town's four-month unbeaten run.

Northampton's unassailable lead at the top of the table was cut to 12 points after Accrington's 3-0 win at relegated York City.
