Bury relegated following defeat to Northampton

Bury's three-year stay in Sky Bet League One is over after Ryan Lowe's side were beaten 3-2 by Northampton.
The Shakers were relegated after Ash Taylor's second goal of the game, in the 87th minute, handed the Cobblers a win which keeps their survival hopes alive. Taylor's winner came as he tapped home Dan Powell's cross.
An end-to-end first half began with Northampton striking first after six minutes when skipper Taylor glanced home Matt Grimes' corner from close range.
Bury levelled five minutes later when Peter Clarke lashed home from five yards after goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell punched Zeli Ismail's corner straight into the skipper's path.
The visitors regained the lead just past the half-hour mark. Substitute Sam Hoskins had only been on the field for two minutes when he met Grimes' through-ball and beat Joe Murphy from 15 yards.
Northampton's John-Joe O'Toole nodded against the foot of a post shortly before the interval.
Bury made it 2-2 with 16 minutes left when Danny Mayor brushed off a couple of weak challenges before smashing home from 12 yards, but Taylor had the final say.
