Iron hit back to earn point against Northampton

Play-off chasing Scunthorpe twice came from behind to pick up a point in a 2-2 draw with Northampton.
The Cobblers took the lead against the run of play in the 13th minute when Chris Long converted at the back post after Matt Crooks had flicked on a free-kick in the box.
Although the Iron rallied, they struggled for quality in the final third, until Funso Ojo found the bottom corner from 20 yards after a driving run through midfield just after the half-hour.
Having got men behind the ball to frustrate the home side, the Cobblers hit Scunthorpe with a sucker punch in the 57th minute when John-Joe O'Toole powered home a header from a corner.
But the Iron also underlined their threat from set-pieces with defender Murray Wallace rising highest above a scrum of players to head home his side's 76th-minute equaliser after a free-kick had spun high into the air.
Buoyed by the goal, the Iron piled forward in search of a winner, but Northampton goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell preserved his side their point by brilliantly pushing away Josh Morris' late free-kick.
