Same again for Boothroyd?
Northampton manager Aidy Boothroyd is expected to name an unchanged side for the third successive game when Southend visit Sixfields.
In fact, Boothroyd will probably select the same starting XI and seven substitutes that formed his matchday squad for both the draw at Rochdale on the opening day of the npower League Two season and the home win over Rotherham on Tuesday night.
That will mean that last season's top goalscorer Adebayo Akinfenwa will once again have to settle for a place among the substitutes.
Southend, play-off semi-finalists and 5-2 winners of this fixture last season, have begun the current campaign with defeats in all three league and cup matches and have yet to score a goal this season.
