We welcome The Cobblers to Valley Parade this weekend, in what is a massive game for both clubs.
If we win, we leapfrog Northampton and climb to 3rd in the table. If they win….well, who cares.
They’re without talisman Sam Hoskins - he’ll be suspended for this one. Seems Kieron Bowie could be miss the game through international duty, but I haven’t read much into that - perhaps Town fans are able to clarify?
Songo’o slotted in for suspended Platt against Sutton at the weekend, and tbf, he was solid. Whether Hughes sticks with him or puts Platt back in, we’ll have to see (but I think it’ll be the latter).
Delighted to see Abo Eisa back out there. He’s started in our last two wins, both away from home; I’m looking forward to seeing him start on home soil at the weekend.

Fancy Cook to turn it on at the weekend. Hoskins has been getting a lot of plaudits for his goals tally (rightly so) - always just ahead of Cook, but in all fairness, Cook has scored more goals than Hoskins in league and cup. He might have a point to prove.
Not sure what Northampton are bringing but it looks as though this fixture has caught the attention of our wider support. There isn’t much availability anywhere in the ground and there’s another 3 days of sales at early bird prices. Possible 19,000+ on the cards.
