A Little Guide To.. Forest Green Rovers
Northampton are once again on the road for their FA Cup First Round tie taking on conference side Forest Green this weekend.

Forest Green announced only last week they will revert to training as a full-time club.

The Rovers, managed by under-fire manager Dave Hockaday, has recently recieved full backing by the clubs board despite a poor start to the season. The Blue Square Premier strugglers currently lying second bottom of the division.

Throw all league form out of the equation this Saturday as in David Hockaday's debut season in charge, he led his side to the FA Cup Third Round proper last season, eventually being eliminated by then League Two high-fliers Notts County.

The Boss
The Rovers are currently managed by Dave Hockaday, who has been at the helm of The New Lawn since September of last year, his first full-time managerial position.

Before his first full-time post, Hockaday had been assistant to Aidy Boothroyd in his time at Watford.

In his time at Vicarage Road, Hockaday has been credited to the success of players such as Paul Robinson, Ashley Young and Hameur Bouazza.

The 52 year old also has past experience as assistant to Martin Allen at MK Dons and Leicester City.
