'Form guide goes out of window', warns Northampton Town boss

Northampton Town manager Aidy Boothroyd says their improved form has given them a chance of avoiding relegation in League Two, but warns they have to maintain it.

The Cobblers are still only two points above the drop zone in 19th place, with ten games left. Saturday's defeat at Accrington ended their winning streak of three games.

Tonight's opponents Burton Albion have lost their last six matches, and recently sacked their manager Paul Peschisolido. But they're six points better off than Northampton.

If you look at the form guide in League Two, the top two are Swindon and Northampton Town, and the bottom two are Accrington and Burton. So the form guide goes out of the window, particularly at this stage of the season.

Obviously there's been a change of manager at Burton, and that can go either way. Either their players can respond or they can't. We just have to wait and see what we can get when we play them'.
