Morecambe boss Jim Bentley said he was happy with the point gained at Northampton on Saturday.
The Shrimps had chances to take all three points but battled hard at Sixfields to come away with a 0-0 draw that made it six League 2 games unbeaten.
Bentley said: “I think overall it was a point gained and keeps our unbeaten run going.
“This is a tough place to come and although they have not had the best start to the season they have a lot of quality and I am pleased we picked up a point against a side who made the play-offs last year.
“They started better than us but we weathered the storm and came in at half-time level which was pleasing.
“We addressed a few things and went out and played better and were definitely more threatening.
“We kept their crowd quiet which is always a good thing and counter attacked pretty well and if Mark Hughes’ header had gone in it would have been an almost perfect away performance.
“Overall we managed the game well, we were disciplined, we were hard working and we put our bodies on the line when we had to and everyone gave their all.”
