A deserved point.

Game was spoilt by the fussy, hopeless and weak man in the middle but if we’d have lost it would have been very cruel

Taylor was a superb focal point and i thought Holohan drove us on well, smith superb again at CB

It felt like a 0-0 for a long while but there goal meant we had to attack and we looked a threat when we did

Wearne really impressed me when he came on, direct and attacking, and he played his part in the goal, finished by JMD who can maybe feel hard done by to not have started yet.

If northampton are the benchmark, we will be fine.

Special mention to the ref for his incredible decision to not award a corner for the most blatant deflection you’ll ever see and his inept attitude which spoilt the entire game.

One of the Worst lot of  away fans at BP also. Quiet, excrement numbers for a pretty easy trip

Mad scramble in their box, ball cleared Town player gets the ball and about to cross it when the ref notices one of their players rolling about in the area. He blows so he can be treated. Restarts the game by giving a drop ball to their keeper. Unbelievable

Worst decision ever. Infact you can't call it a decision it's going against the letter of the law. It's shocking really. Even as an amateur qualified referee i know that's not what happens.

Anyway, I enjoyed listening to it, especially the second half.

Really happy with that, add some much needed attacking options (transfer and injuries back) and I can see us going from strength to strength. You can still see in some moments we are a little behind others in terms of fitness but that’s to be expected.

Think we look very solid in defence and in the middle of the park, just that final third that needs some attention. However that’s not to minimise how good I think Taylor is at what he does.

Holohan was fantastic I thought. However have to admit I love Glennon though, great to see him bombing down the wing and not messing around and getting some quality deliveries into the box!

Feeling very positive after seeing that against a much fancied side in this league.

Special mention to one of the strangest referee performances I’ve seen for a while. Didn’t know if the opposition had the ball around your box you could just collapse holding your head and your keeper gets the ball…

All Town aren’t we

Let's be brutally fair - a fit McAtee would have run them ragged - the game was crying out for his roaming runs  dragging people around.

Mind you - that ref would have got him sent off !!

Taylor will thrive again when he has a runner around him and he gets ball to feet, not long, high punts !

Agree with others that Holohan and Glennon both had good games , with Smith immense at the back !

It felt like they scored with their one clear chance of the game which left us chasing a point while they throw themselves to the floor every 2 seconds, we deserved at least a point but tbh should have scored with one of our earlier chances. Officials were an absolute joke, had no clue what they are doing, their keeper shouldn't get the ball back in that situation at all the team in possession should get it back and restart play. 4th official got it in the ear from Hurst but did nothing, annoying when it goes against us and a manager complains we see a 4th official running on the pitch to intervene but when the ref screws us over we get the guy who just stands there looking gormless when it's clear the ref has it wrong. About as useless as the linesman who were looking at the ref like "uuuhhhh....I dunno".

Not the best game ever and spoiled further by Frodo in the middle. What was he doing? Looked to me like Clifton was fouled in the build up to their goal, but the ref thought otherwise. Fantastic finish mind.

I actually thought Taylor was pretty ineffective and didn't win much against their centre backs. The defence looks solid, the midfield looks solid also but not a lot of creativity in the side. It wasn't until Wearne and JMD came on that we looked more threatening and got a deserved equaliser, after which we could have gone on and won it with a bit more composure or luck.

Was talking to a Northampton fan leaving the ground and he thought we were the better side and that they were well below par, which was maybe down to our organisation.

Thought Smith was magnificent at the back and had a couple of half decent chances too, but didn't make good contact with either.

Looked like we weren't going to get anything, so can't complain too much, especially as we were the side most likely to get the winner with a late rally. Game took us a long time to get going, but we looked half decent for the last 15 mins and they resorted to throwing themselves on the floor every time we got some momentum going. At one point Dave Moore came on the pitch to treat one of their players and the game stopped for a good three minutes.

Frustrating, but I'll take a point.

Holohan MOTM.

Totally lacking in creativity until the subs. Wearne looks very good

Good performance from Town and were unlucky not to win.  

Ref was woeful and felt it was a clear foul on Clifton in the build up to their goal.

Thought Wearne was excellent when he came on.

Holohan would've been my man of the match.

Big discussion to be had about Maguire-Drew, saw both the great and bad from him in his short time on the pitch. Super steady finisher and is always involved in goals, lazy and weak when we don't have the ball.
We'd probably need to find a space for him and take all the responsibility to defend or press off him.
