Jon Brady says Saturday's opponents at Sixfields and the Cobblers know all about each other, but his side will be giving 'everything we have got' to get a good result this weekend.
“Stevenage have signed some strong League 1 players and they will be a real strong team," he said.
"We have had some good contests in the last few years. They know all about us and we know all about them and we are expecting another good game this weekend.
“They are always very organised and I’m expecting a keenly fought contest.
“Credit to Steve Evans and Stevenage, they had a fantastic season last year but as always the focus is on us and we are looking forward to the challenge.
“I can’t wait to see our fans roaring us on, our fans wanted League One football, we are back here now and we are going to make sure we play with full conviction.
“We will be giving it everything we’ve got as we always have and we are here to be extremely competitive.”
