Northampton were relegated back to League 2 this season after just one season in League 1. They made a good start to their campaign this season with a 1-0 home win against Port Vale followed by a 1-0 away win at Colchester. Their 3rd game was a 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Rochdale, while, last time out The Cobblers had a comfortable 2-0 home win against Scunthorpe after the visitors were reduced to 10 men after 20 minutes of the match.
Northampton are 5th in the table, 3 points behind Rovers with a game in hand.
Two of their goals have come from defender Jon Guthrie, while striker Benny Ashley-Seal has also scored. Ashley-Seal used to be part of Wolves u-23 squad, so may be familiar to Rob Edwards. Northampton manager Keith Curle says of Ashley-Seal, “He is a big, strong and powerful striker.”
