Yeovil Town 1-1 Northampton Town

Yoann Arquin's spectacular late volley rescued Yeovil a point after late drama at home to Northampton.

Arquin's 40-yard strike came just a minute after substitute Andy Williams looked to have grabbed the winner for the visitors when he was played in behind and slotted the ball past Stuart Nelson.

Jordan Green should have scored for the Glovers earlier in the game when he was played clean through by Rhys Browne, but he allowed goalkeeper David Cornell to rush out and smother his shot.

At the other end, Kevin Van Veen and Williams broke two-on-one, but when Van Veen needed to pick out his strike partner in space, he over-hit the pass and the chance went begging.

Both Browne and Van Veen saw deflected efforts drift just wide at either end.

Tom James also had Cornell worried with a dipping free-kick which just cleared the crossbar, but opportunities were at a premium until a frantic final five minutes at Huish Park.
