Rochdale 2-1 Northampton Town

Rochdale produced a superb comeback as they scored twice in the last five minutes to beat Northampton and secure their place in the FA Cup second round.

Ivan Toney's glancing header from Darren Carter's free-kick put the visitors into a fourth-minute lead.

Reuben Noble-Lazarus's smart finish into the top corner levelled, before Olly Lancashire met Michael Rose's cross for a last-minute winner.

Dale face the winner of Wednesday's Aldershot v Portsmouth replay.
