Northampton Preview – Cobblers hoping to take first-leg advantage

Northampton Town are a fairly physical side and will be hoping that their conditioning proves crucial in the first leg of their semi-final with Cheltenham.

The Cobblers didn’t always get it right in the regular season but they are a free-scoring side at their best with a host of experienced professionals.

Alan McCormack, Andy Williams and Sam Hoskins have all played at a higher level and defender Scott Wharton has extended his loan from Blackburn until the end of the month so would be eligible to play at Wembley in Northampton progress. Hoskins, however, is suspended for the first leg.

Callum Morton was among the goals for Keith Curle’s team before play was suspended in March and captain Charlie Goode chips in now and again so both could be crucial to Town’s hopes of making progress.

Cheltenham Preview – Robins hoping to pick up where they left off

Cheltenham were one of the form teams in League 2 before play was suspended in March and they will be looking to pick up where they left off at Sixfields.

Michael Duff’s side have won five of their last six matches, with goalkeeper Owen Evans keeping four clean sheets. They would have fancied their chances of closing down the top three had the pandemic not intervened so will be looking for consolation in the play-offs.

The acquisition of Alfie May from Doncaster has been the catalyst for their relative success and he’ll be a handful for the U’s defence alongside the experienced Luke Varney.

Varney scored the winner against Northampton when they last met but is out of contract this summer. Chris Hussey is also playing for his future but Cheltenham will be keen to hang on Ryan Broom.
