Northampton Town manager Chris Wilder is targeting a 'special night' as the Cobblers return to Sixfields for the first time since being crowned as League Two champions.

A sell-out crowd is expected for the visit of Crawley Town, and Wilder wants his team to get that winning feeling again after four draws in a row.

Wilder hails 'unbelievable' Northampton Town promotion

Northampton Town manager Chris Wilder has described the club's march to the League Two title as "unbelievable".

The Cobblers were crowned as champions with four games to spare following a 0-0 draw at Exeter City on Saturday.

Wilder was rewarded for his part in their promotion with the Manager of the Year prize at the Football League awards last night.

From the brink of going out of business to sporting glory, it's been quite a year for Northampton Town now promoted to League One.

It's almost impossible to believe the ups and downs the club has been through in the last 12 months.

The club has survived off-pitch financial problems which included one stalled takeover and potentially being wound up.

At the same time the club embarked on a record breaking run of wins, they're also in line to smash their record of matches without defeat.

On Saturday the Cobblers secured promotion from League Two after drawing 2-2 with Bristol Rovers.

An amazing end to what's been something of a rollercoaster season - both on and off the field.

Northampton Town could confirm their promotion to League One today.

A win against Bristol Rovers at Sixfields could be enough to seal the deal for the Cobblers who are top of League Two.

It would cement a pretty impressive turn of fate for the club which late last year was on the verge of going out of business.
