Northampton 0-1 MK Dons

Aaron Wilbraham
Wilbraham ensured Northampton's battle to stay up will go to the wire

Northampton missed the chance to secure League One safety as they were beaten by play-off bound MK Dons, with Aaron Wilbraham grabbing the only goal.

The Cobblers now play Leeds on the final day of the season when a point should be enough to beat relegation.

Milton Keynes went ahead when Wilbraham turned in a cross from Jason Puncheon.

Northampton applied some late pressure but Luke Guttridge's shot was blocked and Adam Watts had an effort cleared off the line.
