Stevenage make the 47-mile trip to Sixfields Stadium for a Sky Bet League Two clash with Northampton Town on Tuesday evening…
Currently sat 20th in Sky Bet League Two and five points away from the Play Off places, Alex Revell’s men look to get back to winning ways on Tuesday with a win in Northamptonshire. Kick-off is at 7:45pm on Tuesday 19th October.
Since February 2021, Jon Brady has been in charge of the Cobblers after previously coaching in their academy. Last season Northampton were playing in Sky Bet League One but finishing 22nd in the league resulted in relegation straight back to Sky Bet League Two after just one campaign in the third tier.
Founded in 1897, Northampton have been regulars in the Football League for over a century, spending one campaign in the top flight back in the 1965/66 season. Since then, The Cobblers have travelled across the divisions multiple times, earning multiple promotions yet suffering a number of relegations.
So far this campaign, Jon Brady’s side have achieved some good results but have failed to find consistency. In their twelve games, they have won five, drawn three and lost four. The Cobblers currently find themselves eighth in Sky Bet League Two, meaning a win on Tuesday could easily push them into the Play-Off positions. Their current top goal scorer this campaign is centre back, Jon Guthrie, with a tally of three goals so far, proving that Northampton can find goals from a whole range of players in their line-up.
Stevenage and Northampton have faced each other thirteen times competitively with the Cobblers able to boast a 77% win-rate against Boro. Stevenage have only won once against Northampton back in 2014/15, winning 2-1 at the Lamex Stadium.
The most recent fixture between the two sides was in the Papa John’s Trophy Group Stages last season, as Alex Revell’s men held Northampton to a stalemate before the Cobblers won 4-2 on penalties to earn themselves a point in the group. Stevenage aim to get their first ever victory at Sixfields Stadium on Tuesday.
Northampton play their home games at Sixfields Stadium, which is a 7,798-capacity all-seater stadium. The ground was built in 1994 after previous Cobblers’ games had been played at the County Cricket Ground since the year they were founded. Away fans are allocated the Imperial Cars Stand which is found at the South end of the Stadium.
Supporters electing to drive to Sixfields Stadium should leave the M1 at Junction 15A and take the A43 towards Northampton. The stadium will simply be on the right-hand side. As for parking, there is a car-park at the stadium, which will cost £4 to use. Alternatively, the Supporters’ Association coach will be departing The Lamex at a strict time of 5pm. Prices range from £10 to £15 for Concessions and £15 to £20 for Adults.
