Promotion Dream Ended

Northampton's hopes of securing a place in League One next season were ended when they were thumped in the League Two play off Final by Bradford today.

Shell-shocked from this setback The Cobblers were unable to fight back and will have to compete in League Two again next season, whereas Bradford end a memorable campaign with something to celebrate and a place (which would have been the beginning of season aim, as it would have Northampton) in League One secured.
