Final two home games could prove decisive
With 4 games of the season to go, Northampton Town's fate is in our own hands.
With the Cobblers currently occupying 3rd place in the League 2 table, it promises to be the most exciting end to a season for many years for Northampton Town.
2 of the four remaining games are at Sixfields, and these 2 matches will be crucial in determining the destiny of the season.
York City are the visitors on Saturday April 13th (3.00pm), with Barnet due on Saturday April 27th (3.00pm.)
Big crowds are certain for both matches, and Northampton Town Chairman David Cardoza is hoping that Cobblers fans will turn out in force to try and help the team over the line.
"The turnaround in the club has been quite phenomenal," he said.
"13 months ago we were bottom of the Football League and worrying about non-league football. Now we are four games away from possibly winning promotion.
"Would we have taken this 12 months ago? Would we have taken this at the start of the season? Would we have taken this at Christmas? Would we have taken this a week and a half ago? The answer is emphatically yes, yes, yes and yes. Aidy and the players deserve all the praise in the world and we know it will be a really exciting end to the season.
"I really hope that the public come and get behind Aidy and the players. It has not been easy this season. We have had our ups and downs, we have suffered the loss of Alex Nicholls and we have lost our skipper to injury but we have battled on and the togetherness of the squad has shone through.
"Now I believe it is time for Cobblers fans everywhere to get right behind the lads, create a huge, passionate and noisy atmosphere and let's have a full Sixfields helping us in these crucial final 2 home games.
“We need the town, the county, the area and Cobblers fans all around the world right behind us.”
Ticket sales for both games are already at an advanced level.
There is every chance that both games will sell out, and already some of the more popular areas are looking very full.
With that in mind, the club would urge supporters to buy their tickets as soon as possible. Leaving the purchase until just before the game could see supporters unable to sit in their preferred area, or unable to secure seats with friends.
Tickets are on sale for both games now, please call 01604 683777 or visit the Club Shop at Sixfields (open 10am to 5pm Monday-Friday or 7pm on Thursday). The club have extra staff serving supporters and answering the telephones. That said, demand for these games is extremely high so please do bear with us.
A new on-line Box Office is undergoing final testing ahead of a proposed launch in the first half of the week. This will be selling tickets for both matches.
