It was a DIVISION FOUR game last time the two sides met but a lot has changed since then. Aldershot vs Northampton Town will be fondly remembered for Shots and Cobblers fans sharing a terrace back in the early nineties when the home side were in financial difficulty but there will be no such pleasentaries this time around I would imagine.
Aldershot have made a decent start to the season and managed a creditable goalless draw at Notts County at the weekend so it should be a tough game for Sammo’s men. The big question is whether we can put two good halves of football on for the expected small band of claret faithful.
Adebayo Akinfenwa could be rested but could still make the bench for a cameo whilst Liam Davis is struggling again. Courtney Herbert isn’t ready again just yet while Peter Gilbert will have another go at staying on the pitch after his debut dismissal.
The Recreation Ground is the setting for what looks like being a rain drenched evening in North Hampshire so obviously this is all pointing to me being very tempted to make an appearance in hope of building up for that other Hampshire side visiting Sixfields on Saturday…
