Six Of One

THE Pilgrims will look to get back to winning ways on Tuesday night when Northampton come to Home Park, having lost their six match unbeaten run in a heavy manner on Saturday.


The Cobblers had been on a similar run to the Greens as they were six unbeaten until last Tuesday when they lost 1-0 to Scunthorpe in the FA Cup. Only four days later they played the Iron again, and lost 3-0.

Having sacked Justin Edinburgh just four games into the season, Jimmy Floyd Hasslebaink took the reigns at Sixfields. Although the Cobblers have lost their last two Derek Adams is aware of the quality and experience their squad possesses. 

“They have changed their team about a bit and they have some good experience,” said Derek. “Particularly McGugan from Nottingham Forest; he has been there before.” 

Northampton are only four points ahead of Argyle before Tuesday night’s match and Adams recognises how tight the bottom half of the league table is. 

He said: “It’s very tight in the bottom 8 to 10 teams and there is a lot to play for in the coming weeks. We need to get back to having a solid base and getting back to playing with eleven players.”

Derek was also quick to praise the fans over the weekend and across the course of the season, and believes it helps to bring the best out of his players. 

“The supporters have been very good,” he said. “We had 10,800 here on Saturday and they have been very supportive of the players, that is a major plus for us.”
