'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Team News v Plymouth

Plymouth Argyle will be Chris Wilder's first home opponent since his appointment as Northampton boss this weekend.

The Cobblers know that this game at Sixfields is one that they really need to win if they are going to seriously have a chance of staying in league two, and the football league.

Chris Hackett has been missing for over a moth but Wilder confirmed this week that he will be back in contention with the winger set to make a return to the starting XI.

Following his signing during the week Gregor Robertson, who had been a free agent after his release by Crewe, is another that is likely to come in for his Cobblers debut.

Matty Blair, Sean McGinty and James Hurst have return to their parent clubs after loans, however Brennan Dickenson has been brought in on loan from Brighton and should come into the squad.

Wilder knows he needs experience, and "tried and tested" options so loanees have been sent back and he'll be calling on the old heads to try and get the Cobblers the win they need.

Ahead of the game the Northampton boss told BBC Radio Northampton: 'It isn't a time for young loan signings, nor the younger players at the football club, we have to call on the boys, who are tried and trusted.

'If it's a physical battle, we have to stand up to that. If it's a tactical battle, we have to make sure we're good on the sidelines.

'Plymouth will certainly have one eye on the play-offs, so they'll come for a win.'

This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
