Northampton   1 - 1   Bury

Northampton 1-1 Bury

Northampton 1-1 Bury

Northampton and Bury shared the spoils as both missed out on a place in the League Two play-offs.

Adebayo Akinfenwa grabbed a stoppage-time equaliser to prevent 10-man Northampton taking three points.

Ryan Lowe broke the deadlock when he pounced on a slip by Craig Hinton to beat Jason Steele.

The Shakers had James Poole sent off after the break and they failed to hang on to their lead as Akinfenwa levelled with a deflected shot from 15 yards.


Bury manager Alan Knill told BBC Radio Manchester:

"We've thrown away a great chance. We were in a really strong position and our form over the last three months has been really poor.

"I do think it's time for change at Bury Football Club. For two years we've had a real good go and it hasn't worked so now we have to sit down and decide which way we're going to go.

"It isn't just on the pitch because for two years, we've been fantastic and given everybody something to shout about, but we're doing something wrong because we're not quite getting over the line."

Northampton manager Ian Sampson told BBC Radio Northampton:

"I thought we did OK and had the majority of the play, but we were a little lacking in quality in the final third, and that's what cost us the win.

"We knew (the playoffs) would be a long shot, but it was important we didn't lose the game, so fortunately for us we got a lucky deflection at the end and came away with a 1-1.

"I can't knock any of the lads for their effort, and they've given me everything since I took over. Obviously one or two will be moving on, but that decision will be made on Wednesday."
