Northampton Town came from 2-0 down at half-time to draw 2-2 with Yeovil Town, in a result that has the side-effect of relegating the Glovers.

The Somerset side were 2-0 ahead at the break through goals by Tristan Abrahams and Jake Gray, and would also have a goal disallowed before the break.

But they couldn’t hold out, as an own goal from Omar Sowunmi and a Daniel Powell goal brought Northampton level, and despite late pressure, it ended up all square.

Victory for Macclesfield at Port Vale ensured that in combination with a failure to win at the PTS Academy Stadium, the Glovers were demoted to the National League after 16 years in the top 4 tiers.

For their part, Northampton remain in 15th position in League Two, one point ahead of Cheltenham Town.

Yeovil started brightly, with Gray and Abrahams coming close early on, although Andy Williams would also see a volley denied for the hosts.

The visitors would then be awarded a penalty when Sowunmi was brought down in the box during a battle for a long throw, and from the spot, Abrahams beat David Cornell.

Yeovil would make it 2-0 within six minutes of scoring their first, as Gray lifted the ball above and beyond Cornell.

Things could’ve been even better for the visitors at the break, with Gray having a goal disallowed and Courtney Duffus firing wide.

However, the Cobblers would make a quickfire start to the second period, striking two goals within ten minutes of the restart.

Northampton’s first was more farcical, as Sowunmi turned a cross beyond his own goalkeeper. But the home side would then add a quick second, as Daniel Powell received a pass from Joe Powell then beat the Yeovil keeper to level the game up.

Williams and Joe Powell could’ve completed a full turnaround only to have efforts thwarted.

Yeovil would then spurn great less chances to win it, as Alex Fisher hit the bar and substitute Yoann Arquin was denied by Cornell.

But it was too little too late for the away side, who couldn’t get the better of the Cobblers and who were left to lament their demotion come the end of the game.
