Swansea City will be full of confidence going into tomorrow's game against a side who have yet to win a league at home this season.
The Swans travel on the back of 3 consecutive wins with the last being a 2-0 victory over struggling Millwall.
Kenny Jackett: 'This is the start of another big week for us,''
'We've got two games on the road at Northampton and Peterborough (Johnstone's Paint Trophy) before we have a big finish at home to Bournemouth on Friday.
'We've had a lot of pats on the back over the last fortnight and we've got to make sure they are still there at the end of the week.
'It's not what we've done, it's what we do that matters now. We are in a good position in the League and we've got to capitalize on that.
'But my players know that if they drop their performance levels by five per cent then the wins will turn to draws and the draws to defeats.''
Northampton boss John Gorman: 'Swansea are a very good side and we are expecting another very tough game on Saturday,'
'Myself and Jim Barron went down to watch Swansea's game against Millwall on Sunday and I thought they were probably the best team I've seen in this division so far this season.
'I was really impressed with them, everyone will single out Lee Trundle as their danger man because he is a quality player but they have got a lot of good players right across the pitch.
'I thought they were a very good side and I have obviously talked to the players about that.
Northampton Town are without full back Andy Holt who looks like spending up to 3 weeks on the sidelines with a fractured rib.
Mitchell Cole should return after having the flu while Sean Dyche is hoping to be recalled after coming through a midweek reserve match.
Scott McGleish has scored 6 goals in the league this season so the defence will have to keep him quiet tomorrow afternoon.
Kevin Amankwaah and Darren Way will both have late fitness tests before possibly travelling as both are on their way back from injuries.
That will leave just defender Garry Monk on the sidelines as Kenny Jackett has nearly a full strength side to choose from.
Jackett is unlikely to make any changes after a good performance against Millwall last week.
With Knight out of favour at the club, Lee Trundle now looks to be our main goalscorer. He scored a brace in his last away game so here's hoping there'll be more of the same from him tomorrow.
Surprisnigly, the Cobblers are still yet to record their first league win this season. Out of 7 games at the Sixfields Stadium, they've lost 5 and drawn 2.
They currently lie in 16th place, with their away form helping them out. 4 wins and going unbeaten on their travels means they're not struggling in the relegation zone.
I think we're in confident mood of late and with Northampton yet to win on home soil I think we'll keep that poor run of theirs going. 2-1 away win.
