Notts County ended Saturday level on points with 22nd-placed Yeovil Town in League Two after rescuing a 2-2 draw against Northampton Town at Meadow Lane.
Mitchell Rose had put the home side ahead with a long-range effort not long before the half hour mark after Kane Hemmings had seen his initial effort blocked.
The Cobblers, however, drew level just a minute before the break, Daniel Powell turning home Sam Hoskins' cross.
The start of the second half then went completely pear-shaped for the Magpies as a defensive lapse culminating in Ryan Schofield being sent off for bringing down Daniel Powell and Sam Hoskins scoring from the ensuing set piece.
Neal Ardley's side didn't take long to draw level courtesy of Hemmings, who slotted home after 52 minutes following Jon Stead's pass, and keeper Ross Fitzsimons then saved well from Hoskins and Sam Foley in the closing stages as County clung on.
