Northampton at the Sixfields stadium are a formidable force. They have won there last 6 straight home games only conceding 3 goals in the process. Tank-like striker Akinfenwa may return to the starting line up after being dropped to the bench last match.
Bristol Rovers great run of form seems to be dead in the water with a loss to Rotherham and a draw at Morecambe. However gaffer Jon Ward will view it as a point gained against a Morecambe side in form. The pirates will still have half an eye over there shoulder as they are still only 6 points clear of the drop zone and will probably be content with a point from this fixture.
