As six-pointers go, they don't come much bigger at this stage in the season - with just two points separating 19th-place Northampton and 21st-place Bristol Rovers ahead of kick-off. Both won one and lost one over the Easter weekend, although the Cobblers should have the slight edge here given their recent form - which has see them win four of their previous five League One home matches.
Northampton Town will be hoping for a better result after a 3-0 League One loss in their previous game against Hull City. Callum Elder (30'), Keane Lewis-Potter (44') and Gavin Whyte (90') scored for Hull City. Northampton Town have not been in good attacking form in more recent games. Their goals record equals just two versus opponents over the course of their last six matches. In those meetings, The Cobblers have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them total five goals.
Regardless, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern might be maintained here in this game or not. Their prior results show that Northampton Town haven't won against Bristol Rovers in their last six head to head league games whilst they haven't been defeated in their previous two home league matches.
Meanwhile, Bristol Rovers' Easter Monday win over Doncaster ended their five-match losing run, and given only goal difference is only currently keeping them inside the bottom-four, meaning simply avoiding defeat here could see the Pirates climb out of danger.
