Match Preview

Spencer pushing for Shots start Aldershot forward Damian Spencer is pushing for a starting role against Northampton. Former Cheltenham man Spencer came off the bench to score the equaliser in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Stevenage and then capped a rare start with a goal in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Oxford. Manager Kevin Dillon is loathe to stray from his tried and tested 4-2-3-1 formula but could partner Marvin Morgan with Spencer against the Cobblers. Defender Aaron Morris is away with the Wales Under-21 squad so will not feature but Dillon has no other fresh concerns. Midfielder John Halls came through 81 minutes in midweek on his return to action from a groin injury so will be in contention, while Luke Guttridge will line up against his former side. Northampton have been hit with an injury crisis. Striker Tadhg Purcell will miss the rest of the season after he damaged his knee ligaments in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Wycombe while midfielder Ryan Gilligan is set for three months on the sidelines as he undergoes ankle surgery. Veteran left-back Marcus Hall will also be out for around a month after he pulled his hamstring in the 4-0 Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat at Hartlepool in midweek. John Johnson is expected to return from a groin injury and he will play at right-back, with Paul Rodgers moving across to fill Hall's vacancy on the left. Goalkeeper Chris Dunn made his comeback from an ankle injury against Hartlepool and will start so on-loan Spurs youngster Oscar Jansson will be on the bench for the final game of his spell. Defender Craig Hinton is still missing with knee trouble.

Match Report

Harding leaves it late to deny Cobblers Ben Harding volleyed a last-gasp equaliser as Aldershot maintained their unbeaten start to the campaign with a 1-1 draw against Northampton. Harding lashed home deep in stoppage time to cancel out Billy McKay's strike and ensure Northampton remain winless this season. The hosts were quickest out of the blocks, and Marvin Morgan went close early on when his long-range drive was deflected over the crossbar. Morgan was even closer after 13 minutes, his fierce shot palmed away by Northampton goalkeeper Chris Dunn. But the Cobblers worked their way into the game and Steve Guinan wasted a great opening, running through on goal only to see Jamie Young smother his effort. The visitors took the lead 10 minutes before the break, the ball falling to McKay in the area and he confidently curled around Young. Aldershot pressed for an equaliser after the interval, but both Morgan and Luke Gutteridge blazed over when well placed. And the hosts were almost caught out again after 73 minutes when Dean Beckwith stabbed wide with the goal at his mercy after a Michael Jacobs free-kick deceived the home defence.
