Dons support to stoke up JPT tie

Over 1,000 MK Dons supporters will be at Sixfields on Tuesday night

The opening round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy can be a low-key affair but the combination of a local derby and a large away support should stir things up as Northampton look to topple their League One opponents.

Two high-profile names could also be on the pitch for the visitors as former England international Alan Smith returns from suspension and new signing Jimmy Bullard looks to boost his match fitness after a substitute's appearance at the weekend.
