Northampton travel to take on Hull City at The KC Stadium on Saturday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Cobblers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them being consigned to defeat by opponents in 5 of the 8 games.
The last time the two teams met at Hull City was just over four years ago, in October 1999, with Northampton inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Tigers in a League Division Three match.
