He got the ball just outside the penalty area and although tackled by two Northampton players he fought past them and banged the ball home left-footed. Immediately play was resumed following the removal from the field of Harvey the Cobblers equalised. Fowler returned Baron's pass into the goalmouth and Woan crashed the ball past Hunter.
