Cobblers are back in the Sky Bet League One relegation zone after a productive evening for three of their survival rivals.

The shock result of the night came at the DW Stadium as Wigan Athletic fought back from 1-0 down to beat promotion-chasing Sunderland 2-1.

The Latics are now a point above Town having played the same number of games, but AFC Wimbledon are even better off following an emphatic 3-0 victory over Ipswich.
