📝 Match Preview: Northampton Town (H)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match

29 September 2023

Exeter City return to League action at the Park this Saturday to take on Northampton Town in a 3pm kick-off.

The Grecians will be looking to build on Tuesday evening's incredible night under the lights in the Carabao Cup as Demetri Mitchell's goal earned a 1-0 win over Premier League side Luton Town, earning the club a place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup for the first time since 1990!

Visitors Northampton Town have adapted well to life back in League One, currently sitting in 18th place, but are on the back of three straight League defeats.

City will be without Demetri Mitchell, who picked up a red card on Tuesday night, so will sit out Saturday's match.

The atmosphere and scenes at the end were incredible on Tuesday night - more of the same please Grecians! 

Kevin Nicholson's thoughts

"We've got to go out and get SJP rocking again."
