Not Far Away. Will Exeter Start It?

Not Far Away. Will Exeter Start It?

Aidy Boothroyd feels that his Northampton side isn't far away from getting to the level that he expects.

Can this be achieved when Exeter come to Sixfields this weekend?

Defensively you have to have a sound base, Boothroyd knows this hasn't quite been the case so far but this has also been due to injuries and suspensions preventing continuity being seen. Nevertheless another three points or so and the Cobblers wouldn't be far off the start they made last season.

Attacking wise he is happy but want better supply to come into the strikers.

He told BBC Radio Northampton: 'I'm really pleased with Jacob Blyth. He's had a good month with us and he's proved his worth.

'What we've got to start doing is providing him, Clive Platt and Roy O'Donovan with the ammunition to score some goals.'

Northampton do look as though they have to do without Ian Morris (groin) again, with him remaining doubtful. Definitely out is Ishmel Demontagnac (suspension) who will sit out the second of his three-match ban following a recent sending off.

John O'Flynn (hamstring) is a doubt for Exeter, however he's the only doubt for Paul Tisdale who will otherwise have a full squad to select from. The Grecian's boss could be tempted to tinker with his starting XI with some catching the eye from the bench last time out.

At home you would hope, if not expect, Northampton to be at their best but Exeter are a dangerous side and will be there or thereabout at the end of the season so this is a good test for both.

I'm going to lean towards a Cobblers win to get the season kick started, what about you?
