Loan Rangers: Ingram features in Cobblers draw

MATT Ingram's unbeaten start to life as a Northampton Town player continued this weekend, despite the Cobblers throwing away a two-goal lead against Southend United on Saturday.

After back-to-back wins in his - and new boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's - first two games, Northampton made it seven points from a possible nine with a 2-2 draw at Roots Hall.

The Cobblers led 2-0 at the break, thanks to a Nile Ranger own goal and Matt Crooks' 20-yard curler.

But strikes from Jason Demetriou and Anthony Wordsworth saw Phil Brown's side fight back to pick up a share of the spoils.

The draw consolidated Northampton's place in 17th in League One.

In League Two, Brandon Comley's Colchester United lost at Cheltenham Town.

Comley played 63 minutes in the 3-1 defeat, as the ten-man U's slipped down to 17th.

Elsewhere in the fourth tier, Ebere Eze was an unused substitute as Gareth Ainsworth's Wycombe Wanderers suffered a lateĀ 2-1 defeat to Luton Town.

There was no place in the matchday squad for Under-23's defender Jack Williams, also on loan at Adams Park.

In the National League, defender Alex Finney was a 79th minute substitute for Maidstone United, who cruised to a 4-1 win over Macclesfield Town, whilst Brandon Adams played their final 28 minutes in Linfield's 4-0 thumping of Ballinamallard United in the Irish Premier League.
