The Shrimps enjoyed the majority of the chances in front of 3,841 but Aidy Boothroyd's reshaped rearguard showed resolve to earn a vital point after Town's recent poor form.
There was an immediate debut for Paul Reid after he began his second spell with the Cobblers on Friday with Boothroyd lauding the player's 'leadership qualities' after sealing a deal until January.
Now the Town boss will turn his attentions to the other end of the pitch with the goalless draw meaning his team have still only managed six goals so far in League Two this season.
More to come on Cobblers Mad.
