Published : 14 Jul 2009 14:32:37
The Cobblers, relegated to the bottom tier last season, travel to Bridge Road for their second pre-season game after a 1-0 win over Brackley on Saturday. Histon reached the Conference play-offs last term and beat Leeds in the FA Cup. Gray told Northampton's official website: "Histon are renowned for playing quite direct and that is something we need to be able to cope with this season. We hand-picked this game with the plan of giving us a really tough physical examination. "Histon beat West Brom on Saturday and they will want to beat us as well. We will need to stand up and be tough, it will be an excellent test for us early on in pre-season."
