Aldershot 1-1 Northampton

Aldershot 1-1 Northampton

Aldershot   1 - 1   Northampton

Ben Harding volleyed a last-gasp equaliser as Aldershot maintained their unbeaten start to the league campaign with a draw against Northampton.

The hosts started well, Marvin Morgan going close when his shot was palmed away by Cobblers keeper Chris Dunn.

The visitors took the lead before the break, the ball falling to Billy McKay in the area and who curled in.

Aldershot pressed hard for an equaliser which finally arrived five minutes into stoppage-time through Harding.


Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon told BBC Surrey:
"In the end I think the draw was the least we deserved.

"In the second half we went a little bit more direct, got the ball in the channels, got Damien Spencer on and caused them a lot of problems.

"Defensively, apart from the goal, we didn't let them have many chances. We restricted them. We need to score more goals, but we're still creating chances. We just need to finish them."

Northampton Town manager Ian Sampson told BBC Radio Northampton:
"We were solid enough, created one or two chances and got that lead. We were just hoping they could hang on and I thought they had got it.

"I'm very disappointed, we're still searching for that first win which is becoming a bit of a monkey on our back.

"We have to start winning. Pressure is beginning to build so we'll see if we can handle it."
