Manager – Keith Curle
Having managed Mansfield, Chester City, Torquay, Notts County and, most recently, Carlisle, Curle took over at Northampton in 2018. He had spent four years with previous club, Carlisle, before making the move. In his playing days, Curle was a centre back for a number of teams, including Bristol Rovers, Torquay and Manchester City.

Pre-Match View
“Plymouth are a good side with good players but there are areas within their game where we think we can cause them problems and we need to make the most of the ball when we are in possession. I’m sure they will come here full of confidence, they play an expansive open game and they will be a threat.” Keith Curle
