>As tremblings at the bottom of the table continued last night, Burton and Bradford played out the final game in hand to leave the Cobblers looking on relatively happily despite slipping a place. There was a period of time last night when Burton rose up the League Two table into 17th place as they led at Valley Parade.
That goal just before half time for the Brewers came through a John McGrath header and had the travelling support dreaming of overtaking not just the Cobblers but Bradford, Hereford, Macclesfield and Lincoln into what would have been, psychologically at least, a fine position going into the final four games.
But Bradford would have the final say and thankfully levelled the game when a long throw wasn’t dealt with by the visiting defence and Jake Speight swooped to earn his side a point. That should make City fans themselves breathe a little easier ahead of an Easter weekend fixture list that will surely be the defining weekend of the season.
Every League Two team plays twice over this weekend and by the end of it things will be an awful lot clearer at both ends of the table.
