Cobblers boss Jon Brady says his side will travel to Tuesday's Papa John's Trophy game at Ipswich Town looking to win the tie.
"We will go to Ipswich and try and be the best version of ourselves that we can be," he said.
"We will make changes, there are some players who need minutes and we will look at that but we will also be trying to win the game.
"AKin Odimayo came on on Saturday and will get minutes, so will Jack Sowerby and we hope that Josh Eppiah will get some minutes too.
"Josh only trained for a full week for the first time last week and we will go carefully with him. Usually players have six weeks in pre-season but Josh hasn't had that so we are giving him a mini pre-season now. It will take time, we need to be patient but we want him for the long term and not the short term."
