Following an injury lay-off Lee Burge was back in goal for the visit of Wigan Athletic with top goalscorer Sam Hoskins also passed fit to start. Louis Appere was back on the bench but seven players were unavailable for selection due to injury, Jack Sowerby, Sam Sherring, Danny Hylton, Akin Odimayo, Ali Koiki, Ben Fox and Tyler Magloire.

Jordan Jones fired over an early chance for Wigan but with a quarter of an hour played it was the Cobblers who took the lead from the penalty spot, the returning Sam Hoskins converting the spot-kick after Kieron Bowie was brought down in the area by Latics goalkeeper Sam Tickle.

A headed goal-line clearance from Aaron McGowan on the half-hour mark denied Wigan an equaliser and the Cobblers then went close to a second goal when Shaun McWilliams volleyed just wide from 20-yards.

Burge, making his 50th appearance for the club, made a good save to keep out a Liam Morrison header in first half stoppage time to ensure the Cobblers led at the break.

Thelo Aasgaard tested Burge in the opening exchanges of the second half while Tyreece Simpson fired over for the Cobblers.

Wigan got themselves back on level terms on 64 minutes, Josh Magennis scoring from close range after being played in by substitute Matt Smith.

Manny Monthe replaced Hoskins in the Cobblers first change as Jon Brady switched to a back three with Louis Appere then introduced at the expense of Tyreece Simpson.

The game was in the balance going into the final ten minutes with McGowan making another vital intervention to deny Jones. Mitch Pinnock then shot just wide with the 90 minutes up and in the end the points were shared.
