📝 Match Preview: Northampton Town (A)

Come down from Tuesday night yet? Still partying? Well, you better had, as City still have two games left before we wave goodbye to Sky Bet League Two, starting with a trip to Northampton Town on Saturday.

The Cobblers currently sit in third in the table and have promotion aspirations themselves, while the Grecians now have their eyes on the title after cutting Forest Green Rovers' lead at the top to goal difference alone. Northampton were 4-2 winners away at Leyton Orient on Saturday, a result which helped deny City's hopes of going up that day, and are in prime position for the final automatic promotion place. 

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

Following an unforgettable promotion to League One on Tuesday night, City head to Sixfields to face a side hoping to join us in the third tier next season.

"It's a sell out and a huge game of football. We go there with confidence and in good spirits and we give respect to the opposition," Matt said.

"They beat us back in December and they have been there and thereabouts all season. I hope it's a good reflection of two teams at the top of the table. We have to give a good reflection of a team that has just been promoted.

"I'll be making sure my players are fully focused on the task at hand. This is another opportunity. It's all to play for and it's right in front of us."
