Northampton Town have missed out on promotion to League One following a 3-0 defeat to Bradford City at Wembley.

The Cobblers paid the price for a poor first half, conceding all three goals – which came via James Hanson, Rory McArdle and Nahki Wells – in the opening half hour.

Earlier, thousands of Cobblers fans had made the journey to the home of football, with London Midland putting on extra trains from Northampton station.

But despite pre-match optimism, Northampton fans watched a disappointing performance on the pitch from their side.
