Northampton’s League 2 season continued with a draw against Wimbledon at Kingsmeadow on Tuesday.

The unbeaten run was extended but Northampton had to settle for another draw against Wimbledon, yet still increased the lead over second placed Plymouth who lost at Barnet.

On the stroke of half time John-Joe O’Toole’s, with his eighth-goal of the season, had Northampton ahead from a Joel Byrom corner.

Wimbledon denied us a win though when Lyle Taylor curled home an equaliser for the Dons just past the hour leaving them a point off the play-offs whereas the Cobblers have lost only once in 21-match with the gap to fourth placed Accrington 19-points.

These were the other results.

Tuesday 1st March 2016
Barnet 1-0 Plymouth
Bristol Rovers 4-1 Hartlepool
Cambridge 1-0 Wycombe
Carlisle 2-2 Leyton Orient
Crawley 2-0 Newport
Exeter 1-1 Portsmouth
Luton 1-0 Morecambe
Northampton 1-1 Wimbledon
Notts County 0-0 Dag & Red
Oxford Utd 4-0 York
Yeovil 1-0 Accrington

Having last week beaten promotion contenders Portsmouth (who drew one-one at Exeter) a week later Barnet (one-nil) did it again at home with automatic promotion chasing Plymouth seen off at the Hive!

For Plymouth though as most of the possible challengers to a top three finish they’re on for couldn’t pick up wins it didn’t impact too much with only the side they seem likely to battle for the runners-up spot behind Northampton (who drew one-one with play-off chasing Wimbledon) Oxford (four-nil) winning heavily against York.

A Hartlepool (four-one) loss at Bristol Rovers, who are fighting to go up, increases the relegation worries Craig Hignett’s side have whereas Yeovil (one-nil) continue to move towards safety with a win at Huish Park against Accrington.
