Huge game. Would take a point right now I must admit, Plymouth are a very talented side. However we can be dangerous, probably more dangerous when playing away with our pace going forward. Collins should make his debut, and hopefully he can grab a goal or two. We've got a horrendous record at Plymouth but we did at Luton as well and that didn't turn out to be a bad game!

Long way to go on a Tuesday but wouldn't miss it, reckon we'll just creep over 200 travelling fans. Hoping for 1-0 win, but reckon Plymouth will just edge it. 3 points would be massive as we then have Dagenham and Morecambe which presents a great chance to get a little buffer established, so here's hoping. Up the Cobblers.

Gutted this got moved to a Tuesday as there is no way for me to get out of work early enough. Our record home and away against Plymouth has been dire the last few years. Would definitely take a draw right now.

Will be interesting to see how our attacking style fairs against Plymouth and there rock solid defence. A win here would be HUGE.

Pretty easy winning at Plymouth these days.

1-0 Northampton.

A game in which both sides will not want to lose. I am going for 1 - 1 with Northampton scoring first.

Cobblers will win the title this season, they seem to have the lot, including forward momentum and a positivity around the place. Can't see anyone stopping that myself.

Think Adams has been outdone by Wilder tonight, took him by surprise playing 2 up top and we started much faster and stronger. They were a bit moany and seemed to get some soft decisions out of the referee, but contributed to their own downfall with the two goals. This really has been a belting season, enough action for 3 seasons!

Definitely a case of Wilder out managing their manager tonight.

That was a huge win for us. Now have an 8 point buffer over Pompey in 4th which is ideal. Bold of Wilder to change from our usual formation to 2 up top but it clearly worked.

Interestingly Rico has scored 16 goals this season, apparently all in different games. That is how you want your striker to perform, consistently over the season instead of blowing hot and cold.

We are also only 9 points of our total points tally for all of last season. Think its safe to say we will pass that with 21 games remaining.
