History of the Northampton Town v Cheltenham Town fixture

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.
