Cobblers boss Keith Curle has been looking ahead to Saturday’s trip to Bristol Rovers, one of his former clubs.
“Bristol Rovers are a robust, consistent League 1 club,” he said.
“They have established themselves at this level and it will be another good challenge for us.
“I started my career at Bristol Rovers as an apprentice and I’ve got good memories of my time there. I know the manager from my time at Crystal Palace and he is someone with good footballing pedigree.
“There were lots of good things to come out of Saturday but there are lots of areas where we can improve.
“We gave Hull a good game, there are just one or two things we need to tidy up on.
“The two goals were disappointing but it is something we can look at and work on.”
