So we’re now completely moved into the new place…huzzah! That means you can get my not-so-daily ramblings once again on all things Cobblers and it’s been another steady week of operation: safety for Aidy and the boys. The biggest Sixfields crowd for three years saw a goalless draw with Plymouth Argyle and it’s fair to say that both sides will be pretty happy to come away with a point from a tight contest.
Hereford and Macclesfield now occupy the bottom two places in League Two with Argyle jumping out of the drop zone with that point and Dagenham also putting distance between themselves and those bottom couple of sides with a dramatic late show at home to Accrington. Plymouth would be the ones, along with the Cobblers, of course, that I would hope stay up. I’ve got nothing at all against the others but as a club I would hate to see Plymouth depart the shores of the Football League – terrific support from them once again on Saturday and on the whole I would prefer them to be opponents of ours next season than Macclesfield, Hereford or Dagenham.
As for the Cobblers, it’s looking better by the week and now that games are running out the five point gap between ourselves and the bottom two looks stronger than ever ahead of the trip to playoff chasing Crewe on Saturday. The Alex are a point off the playoffs and will be putting this one down as a must win but their style of play could leave them open to a surprise or two from our end.
That’s all to look forward to but for now I’m enjoying walking around the new place with no boxes tripping me up. See you closer to the weekend for an in depth look at the Crewe game and an analysis of the relegation battle to come in the final few weeks of the season!
