It might have been expected that the tie would take place on Saturday but, with both teams playing in their respective leagues on New Year's Day, the decision has been taken to move it to the Sunday.

Northampton's previous FA Cup games this season, against Chippenham and Notts County, were also played on Sundays.

Ticket prices have been reduced for the third-round clash at the Pirelli Stadium. Terrace tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for U17s with seat tickets £12 and £7 respectively.
