Northampton Town will have a sell-out crowd for the third time in three weeks to watch the FA Cup third round tie against MK Dons on Saturday.

All tickets for the game have been sold three days ahead of the local derby which kicks off at 3pm.

Cobblers spokesman Gareth Willsher said it would be the third time in the past month the ground would be at its current 6,000 capacity as all tickets were also sold for the league games against Portsmouth and Accrington Stanley.

Mr Willsher said the new chairman and the positive results on the pitch had led to an increase in demand for tickets.

He said: “We will again have a mobile fan’s village outside the stadium and we are asking supporters to arrive as early as possible for the game.

“We hope it will be a great atmosphere.”
