Last Time Out
The Cobblers were hammered 4-0 at Derby County on Tuesday night while Barrow were beating Morecambe 1-0 at Holker Street.
One To Watch
The Cobblers could welcome back a couple of our recently injured players (Jon Guthrie, Jack Sowerby and Louis Appéré) but Keiron Bowie serves the final game of his three game suspension. Max Dyche, Ben Fox, Tyler Magoire and Danny Hylton are long term absentees.
Barrow have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the weekend but Robbie Gotts could come back into the side after suspension with former Cobbler Sam Foley possibly making way in their midfield.
Paul Howard is the referee for Saturday’s game at Sixfields. Howard hasn’t officiated a Cobblers game since a 1-1 home draw with Walsall in March 2022. Anthony Da Costa and Richard Wigglesworth are running the lines and Oliver Mackey is fourth official.
This is likely to be a really tough tie against a side coming into form in League Two. I think we will nick it but it may not be pretty! 1-0 Cobblers
