Eighteen-year-old James Balagizi scored the first goals of his career at Broadfield Stadium as Kevin Betsy's side were beaten 3-2 by visitors Northampton Town. Balagizi finished off two well-crafted moves for his side by completing the entire game.

"Obviously, coming to play professional football, it's something you dream about as a kid, scoring your first goal," Balagizi reflected after the game. I'm very happy to do it here. It's a shame about the result, but I'm very happy to have scored my first two goals," he said.

Conor Bradley scored the winner in Bolton Wanderers' 1-0 win over Morecambe in League One and picked up the man of the match award. The full-back has scored two goals and two assists in five games under Ian Evatt.

"It was a brilliant feeling to score again. I'm very happy with the three points. It was a hard-earned three points and the boys are delighted. I'm delighted to be here so far. Since I've arrived, the lads have been great to me. They've helped me settle in really well, I didn't expect to be top scorer, but we'll take it and keep working hard," Bradley said.
