Not for the first time this season, Exeter City have a critically important fixture to look forward to as Northampton Town arrive on Tuesday evening.Victory over the Cobblers would settle nerves – indeed the Grecians have seen a number of teams claw their way ahead and into mid-table, and the end of the campaign looks as though it will be a close-run thing.For City, this proverbial six-pointer not only offers the chance to climb a rung or two, but also offers the chance of confining Chris Wilder’s side to the relegation places for just a little longer.Whatever the score, Northampton will remain in the bottom two on Tuesday evening but a win would put a nine-point cushion between Exeter and their guests. Defeat, on the other hand, would move the Cobblers to within three points of City with a game in hand.It seems a little premature to think about permutations of results at the moment – with all teams in the bottom half having their share of ropey and brilliant results, it’s anyone’s guess what will happen at the foot of the table.But one thing is certain – a win against Northampton, which would be a first home triumph in over five months, wouldn’t come a moment too soon.click here to buy online, ring Ticket Zone on 0844 844 4410 or come into Reception at St James Park.
