Northampton Town Champions of League 2 despite draw at Exeter

 Football News 24/7

Northampton Town were crowned champions of League Two, despite being held to a goalless draw at Exeter City.

But rivals Oxford lost at home to Luton Town and Accrington Stanley drew with Morecambe to hand the Cobblers their first title since the 1986-87 season.

It's a remarkable turn around for a club that was on the verge of administration earlier in the season.

Exeter's Jayden Stockley had a header tipped over the bar before the Bournemouth loanee sent another wide.

Zander Diamond's header was the Cobblers' best effort before Stockley twice hit the bar for the Grecians.

Exeter remain in ninth place, two points off the play-off places.
