Northampton Saints V Glasgow Warriors

Harry Mallinder scored a late try to give Northampton victory over Glasgow and revive their hopes of making the European Champions Cup last eight.

Teimana Harrison had shunted over from close in to give Saints the lead, but three Finn Russell penalties put Glasgow 9-7 up soon after the break.

Christian Day's try restored Saints' lead but two more penalties saw Glasgow open a three-point advantage at 15-12.

But Glasgow were reduced to 14 men and punished by Mallinder's late score.

With Racing 92's 64-14 win over Scarlets earlier in the day securing the French side top spot in Pool Three, only Northampton can now gather enough points to qualify as one of the three best runners-up and progress to the last eight.

Down to 14 men following Tim Swinson’s yellow card, the Warriors conceded a late score when Stephen Myler's high crossfield kick was knocked down into 19-year-old Mallinder's hands by George North to ensure the Warriors will fall short of the knock-out stages.
