The Cobblers headed west on Saturday afternoon looking to end a disappointing August on a high note

Aidy Boothroyd’s side had already suffered two defeats on the road and been reduced to ten men in both games with the manager calling on his side to be smarter in their approach to away fixtures while also looking for a response to the home reverse against Torquay United."In the first few games we've beaten ourselves, which is irritating from a managerial point of view,” he told BBC Radio Northampton prior to the game.Opponents Rovers gained a first win of the season at home to York last weekend and were looking to push on from that with manager John Ward warning his side that Town would be ‘fired-up’ for the clash.Clive Platt and Roy O’Donovan were paired up front for the Cobblers while new signing Matty Harriott was on the bench.
