Matty Blair: Earned his new boss a point

Matty Blair: Earned his new boss a point

Matty Blair's second-half strike helped earn League Two basement boys Northampton a 1-1 draw for new boss Chris Wilder at Cheltenham.

The new Cobblers boss could not asked for a worse start to his reign when goalkeeper Matt Duke flapped at Matt Richards' ball over the top, allowing Jamie Cureton to tap home with less than a minute on the clock at the Abbey Business Stadium.

Northampton should have been level soon after when Antonio German went on barnstorming run down the right wing and he picked out Ian Morris on the far side of the box but his effort hit a post.

After a frantic opening 10 minutes both sides started to settle, although German could have levelled for the visitors on the half-hour mark following a mistake from Robins stopper Scott Brown.

Lee Collins came to Northampton's rescue early in the second half after another error from Duke let in Cureton, the Cobblers defender shepherding the ball out.

And Blair duly levelled for the visitors after 76 minutes when he ran to the near post to tuck away new boy Leon McSweeney's right-wing cross.
