Last Time Out
Bristol Rovers were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Stevenage on Tuesday night while the Cobblers drew 2-2 with Leyton Orient at Sixfields.
One To Watch
With sixteen goals to his name last season and four so far this time out, Aaron Collins leads the line with power and is a constant threat for Rovers.
The Welshman counts home town club Newport County, Wolves, Notts County, Tranmere, Maidstone, Colchester, Morecambe and Forest Green Rovers among his previous clubs.
Bristol Rovers will be missing Ryan Woods after he saw red in their 4-1 defeat at Burton last weekend while Luke McCormick is out with an ankle injury that looks set to keep him out until the New Year. Jordan Rossiter has been out since last December and is still a way off in his recovery from a damaged meniscus.
The Cobblers will again be without Jon Guthrie while Louis Appéré is not likely to be back in time for the trip to the Memorial Stadium and Keiron Bowie is suspended following his red card on Tuesday night. Tyler Magloire, Ben Fox and Danny Hylton are long term absentees.
Sunny Singh Gill is in charge on Saturday. His last Cobblers game was our 1-0 win at Colchester United back in February. Kevin Howick and Alan Cresswell are running the lines and Mark Derrien is fourth official.
The lack of Joey Barton in the home dugout makes this more unpredictable as the home side will be looking to prove a point to a potential new boss. The Cobblers need to pick something up and I think we can. I’ll go for 1-1.
