Saracens kept the pressure on Aviva Premiership leaders Leicester as they fought back from behind to inflict a 29-15 defeat on Northampton.

Sarries' Carlos Nieto and Owen Farrell were both sin-binned in the opening half, but the visitors only found themselves four points down at the break.

Jon Clarke and Paul Diggin touched down for Saints either side of half-time, but tries from Brad Barritt - who also kicked a drop-goal - and Matt Stevens and 16 points from the boot of Alex Goode helped Sarries clinch victory.
