Wilbraham sinks Cobblers

Published Add your comment

Northampton must get something at Leeds on the final day of the season or hope results go their way if they are to avoid the drop after a 1-0 defeat to MK Dons.

A solitary goal from Aaron Wilbraham condemned the Cobblers to the defeat which means they still need a point to guarantee their League One status.

MK Dons bossed the first half as Sam Baldock missed a sitter and then Jason Crowe cleared off the line from Mark Wright before Wilbraham got the only goal in the 34th minute turning home a cross from Jason Puncheon.

Scunthorpe eased back into the top six with a comfortable 3-0 win against already-relegated Cheltenham.

It means just a point from their final day clash with Tranmere would be enough to secure a play-off place.

They took control with two goals in four minutes just before half time as first Paul Hayes made it 20 for the season with a close-range finish after 36 minutes, and then skipper Cliff Byrne doubled the lead by drilling home an angled shot for just his third goal for the club.
