The Cobblers and Accrington Stanley meet tomorrow afternoon with both sides having earned fine wins in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night. Stanley saw off Doncaster Rovers after extra time whilst the Cobblers defeated Brighton and Hove Albion so both sides go into this one with their tails up.
Accrington kicked off the season with a creditable goalless draw with Aldershot last weekend as they look to step up after last season’s failed attempt at finishing in the top seven. New faces include Charlie Barnett from Tranmere, Michael Hall from Blackburn Rovers and Macclesfield Town duo Craig Linfield and Sean Hessey.
Plenty of new faces should feature then for the visitors to Sixfields and we should be in for a tricky test at Sixfields.
Liam Davis is struggling for fitness and may well miss the game with an ankle injury. Kevin Thornton could earn a start after featuring on Tuesday night but the game is still too early for Chris Dunn so Oscar Jansson will deputise again.
Having seen off higher level opposition on Tuesday, it’s back to the nitty gritty of League Two action then and let’s hope we’re at least off the bottom of the Football League come 5 o’clock tomorrow!
