Cobblers boss Keith Curle says the spotlight will be on the visitors as he prepares the squad for Saturday’s home game against Colchester United.
“I think the pressure is on Colchester,” he said.
“They have just slipped out the play-offs and they will be desperate to get back in. They are a team that start games very well and it’s important we meet that challenge head on.
“There is nothing to be scared of and there is no fear factor in our changing room.
“We are playing a team that has aspirations of finishing in the play-offs and it’s another good challenge for us.
"Our first aim is to turn more of the draws at home in to wins and to move up the table.
“We know we can score goals but we need to take advantage of the chances we get.”
