Scott Pollock (foot) and Shaun McWilliams (illness) were both missing from the trip to Oldham Athletic as the Cobblers looked to make it four wins from four games. Chris Lines and Matt Warburton came into the side with the fit again Egli Kaja named on the bench.

It was a wet and gloomy early November afternoon in Greater Manchester as the game got underway. The Cobblers started brightly with Warburton seeing a shot from 20-yards turned behind by Zeus de la Paz.

Matt Warburton wasn’t to be denied a second time though and the former Stockport man opened the scoring on 6 minutes, his first ever league goal a tap in from close range after Chris Lines' initial effort from a Nicky Adams corner came back off the post.

Filipe Morais headed wide and Jonny Smith found the side netting as the home side looked to respond. Morais looked a threat and he curled a shot just over the bar after an initial save from David Cornell, Chris Eagles having also seen an effort well blocked inside the area.

The Cobblers had a chance to double their lead before half-time but the cross bar denied Warburton his second goal of the afternoon, meaning there was still only one goal in it as the teams left the field for half-time.

Chris McCann had a shot blocked in the opening exchanges of the second half and it needed a vital interception from Scott Wharton to deny Desire Segbe Azankpo a chance inside the six-yard box.

Goalscorer Warburton fired over and Andy Williams, on for Paul Anderson, shot wide from the edge of the area with just over fifteen minutes to play.

Andy Williams made it 2-0 on 80 minutes, the substitute with a terrific turn and shot into the top corner after being played in by Lines.

Latics substitute Scott Wilson pulled a goal back to set up a tense last few minutes and the home side were back on terms when Jonny Smith’s cross/shot was cruelly deflected past Cornell.

Unsurprisingly those two goals lifted the home fans and a nervy six minutes of stoppage time followed before the referee blew for full-time and the points were shared.

These spaces are available for pre-bookings before the match and can be booked up until 4pm the day before the game.
