Cobblers will be keeping a close eye on events elsewhere this evening with four of their relegation rivals in action.

The biggest game in the League One relegation fight sees the bottom two face one another as Rochdale (24th) host Swindon Town (23rd). A three-goal victory for Swindon would take them above the Cobblers.

AFC Wimbledon, who entertain Ipswich Town, and Wigan Athletic, who welcome Sunderland, will also leapfrog Town if they pick up victories.

Cobblers boss Jon Brady will be taking a keen interest in tonight's events.

"When we came in, I think it would be fair to say a lot of people thought we were dead and buried," said Brady. "But right now, we're above the line. There'll be some results in midweek, hopefully they're kind, but we will keep fighting.

"There are five more games to go. It was another point gained on Saturday and that's the way we've got to look at it and we've got to keep moving forward."
