Tenerife to Sixfields for Macclesfield!

Saturday's opponents are hoping a break in the sun will snap their losing streak

Another week and another crucial game at the foot of League Two as Northampton Town host a Macclesfield side who have lost five on the bounce.

Boss Gary Simpson took his players away from it all in a bid to change their fortunes and told the club's official website: "I wouldn't say we're feeling the pressure. But we all recognise that our results haven't been good enough of late.

"Hopefully a few days in the sun will be just what the doctor ordered but we won't know until after the Northampton game. That's the true test.

"We just need to stick together, continue to work hard and try to get through this rough patch.

"We're a few weeks away from starting to see any of the injured players return so it's vital we don't start feeling sorry for ourselves."
