MATCH PREVIEW: NORTHAMPTON TOWN v PORT VALE

The lowdown as the Valiants come to town

31 March 2024

NORTHAMPTON TOWN v PORT VALE
MONDAY 1st APRIL 2024
3:00PM
SIXFIELDS STADIUM
SKY BET LEAGUE ONE

11th-placed Northampton Town host 21st-placed Port Vale in Sky Bet League One on Easter Monday.

Jon Brady is under no illusions that the Cobblers face a very tough test when Port Vale visit Sixfields on Easter Monday.

Vale are battling to stay in Sky Bet League One and have won their last two games, leaving Brady very aware of the threat they pose.

"Port Vale played really well against us up at their place earlier in the season and they are in good form so we know it will be really tough," he said.

"We’ll see how the players are after Friday and we might need to freshen things up in one or two areas but we’ll pick the side we feel can best get a good result.

"There’ll be a big Bank Holiday crowd at Sixfields and we’ll look to put on a good performance to reward the supporters but we know it will be very tough against a good side.

"We have seen so often you need everyone on top of their game to get a good result at this level and that’s what we’ll be looking for on Monday."
