Charlo's Cobblers Return

FORMER Northampton defender Anthony Charles is relishing a return to his old club.

Charles, 31, joined the Pilgrims from the Cobblers in January and will now return to Sixfields with his new side on Saturday.

"I'm looking forward to going back,” said Anthony.

“I still speak to a number of the players there. For me, it was a real good place.

"They have a great set of lads and I think that's probably reflecting in how well they are doing on the pitch. I don't have a bad word to say about anybody there."

Anthony made 20 appearances for Northampton, with 11 of those coming this season and knows first hand what a threat his former team-mates can be.

He said: "They are probably one of the strongest teams in the league.

"Away from home, results don't really go their way, but it's going to be a very difficult game for us when we go there.

"We have to be focused from the off. Teams have gone there – not many, I know – and got results. Hopefully we can be in that small number by putting in a very good performance."

"They (Northampton) are the home team and with where they are in the table, they are going to be favourites. You would probably expect them to come out all guns blazing in the first five or 10 minutes.

"We need to make sure we keep their fans quiet, and that means us starting well."
