Northampton’s League 2 season continued with a draw against Hartlepool at Victoria Park on Saturday.

It was always going to happen at some point with Hartlepool becoming the side to end the 10-match winning run Northampton had been on in this nil-nil draw.

Hartlepool probably had the better of the chances, the best of all through veteran striker Billy Paynter but when this passed him by Northampton came away having extended the unbeaten run knowing the club record of successive league wins is ten to be beaten in the future – if it is?

We’re still very, very well placed to finish in the top three, if not win the title.

These were the other results.

Saturday 27th February 2016
Accrington 1-2 Barnet
Wimbledon 2-2 Oxford Utd
Dag & Red 0-1 Yeovil
Hartlepool 0-0 Northampton
Leyton Orient 2-0 Crawley
Morecambe 1-2 Carlisle
Newport 1-0 Mansfield
Plymouth 1-0 Notts County
Portsmouth 2-1 Cambridge
Stevenage 0-2 Exeter
Wycombe 1-0 Bristol Rovers
York 2-3 Luton

Plymouth (one-nil) were the only of the top three to actually win, so they’ve strengthened the automatic hopes that little more, which are still looking pretty good anyway.

The winning run Northampton (nil-nil) had been on finally ended with the Cobblers drawing at relegation threatened Hartlepool to see Argyle close the gap by two-points but this should still be more than enough for the job to be seen through.

Oxford (two-two) were also held with play-off chasing Wimbledon keeping their chances on after this game at Kingsmeadow with those looking to close in on the third placed U’s aided….

If they won of course!

Yet there weren’t too many looking to do just that able to manage it with the play-off picture becoming all the more congested if anything given the mixed nature of the results of those in and around those positions.

The battle to stay in the Football League saw Yeovil (one-nil) collecting a big three-points with a win at rivals Dagenham whereas York (three-two) suffered defeat when Luton went away from Bootham Crescent with the points.
