Northampton prepare to entertain Cheltenham Town at Sixfields on Tuesday evening, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having managed to conjure up a win from 2 of the previous 3 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Sixfields was less than a year ago, in December 2003, the Cobblers carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League Division Three match.
