Scunthorpe 4-4 Northampton

Northampton fought back superbly from three goals down early in the second half to earn a 4-4 draw.

Ben May's header and Gary Hooper's shot put the home side ahead before Scott McGleish pulled one back.

Hooper headed his 15th goal of the season for 3-1 and when May made it 4-1 on 51 minutes, it all looked finished.

Giles Coke's free-kick gave Northampton hope, Danny Jackman made it 4-3 and on 85 minutes keeper Joe Murphy fumbled Jackman's corner into his own net.
