Northampton Town’s hectic run of fixtures at the start of the 2015/16 season continued on Tuesday night at Sixfields with a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy first round tie against League One side Colchester United.
Paul Corry made his first start for the club as Chris Wilder made a handful of changes to the side following the weekend draw at Accrington.
The Cobblers drew first blood on 8 minutes, Dominic-Calvert-Lewin chesting the ball home from close range, Sam Hoskins providing the cross.
Macauley Bonne headed Colchester level just after the half-hour mark, Bonne timing his jump well to connect with a ball in from the left from Callum Harriott.
