As he prepares for Saturday's game, Cobblers boss Keith Curle says he is looking forward to Saturday's trip to Cheltenham.
“I’ve had some good games there," he said.
"It is a very enjoyable and friendly ground. You are always made to feel welcome and if you look at their recent home record over the last few months is pretty good.
“They are a confident bunch who are playing well and the manager has been on a learning curve this season finding out how to mould and shape a team to compete in this division. It does take time but I think he is enjoying his work."
Curle has meanwhile provided a fitness update on midfielder Shaun McWilliams (hamstring).
"Shaun has had a scan and we are just waiting on the results.
"We think it's just a minor thing, we closed it down early and he might be available for the weekend."
