Must win for us really I'd say looking at Plymouth and Oxford's two fixtures. Very realistic possibility that we will be top outright come 5pm on Saturday.

Collins and Martin should come back in, Potter too and hopefully we will look a bit fresher than we did on Tuesday. Been a gruelling run of games, so hopefully we can shithouse a win against Morecambe then we've got a free weekend.

Remember it being a very open game at our place back in September. It finished 2-4 but could have been any score with you the better side on the day. You are on a great run so i'd hope we turn up on Saturday with a nothing to lose attitude and have a real go. I have been at Sixfields to see us win/lose & draw so happy to make the trip hoping for a good open game. Haven't taken much notice of how James Collins is fitting into your system alongside Marc Richards. Always had them as pretty similar players, excellent target men at L1/L2 just not sure how you would play both??

We have a couple of injuries to key players down our right. It will certainly help our cause if Beeley and/or Barkhuizen are fit. I predict a few goals and am hopeful we can at least get a share of the points. Give Devitt space at your peril, he and Miller have a great understanding that is great to watch when they are on it.

2-2 with a hardy 100-150 visiting fans making the journey down the M6/M1

It will be interesting to see how we line up. Against Plymouth we played both Richards and Collins together and it seemed to work quite well, considering it was their 1st time together. At Dagenham we started with Collins up front on his own and by all accounts it didn't perhaps work as well, Richards came on at half time and we transformed as a team with both of them up front. I'd expect to see them both start up top.

We have Lee Martin back after being cup tied and Alfie Potter is fit again so thankfully we have a few more options as we really were down to bare bones v MK on Tuesday.

This is bound to be a tough game, they always are against Morecambe. I'd expect to see some sort of reaction from us after Tuesday night and hopefully we will come out of the traps quickly.

I'll predict 3-2 Cobblers.

Not sure Richards will start to be honest, he looked knackered against Dons on Tuesday night
