This weekend's game will see him lock horns with Cobblers' strikers Adebayo Akinfenwa and Bas Savage. “Bayo and me became close friends at Northampton as we were both put up in a hotel together and I was with Bas at Tranmere," McCready told The Visitor. “They are both great lads and good players who use their height and strength well and make things difficult for defenders. “But we have looked pretty solid so far this season and will be ready for the challenge."
