Match Preview: Northampton Town vs Bury

2 October 2018

Bury make the trip to Northampton on Tuesday evening looking to make it three away wins in a row.

Victories against Swindon Town and Colchester United in September contributed towards Ryan Lowe's nomination for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month award.

Speaking after Saturday's win over Colchester in Essex, Lowe said that he was looking to extend the winning habit on their travels, but stressed that it wasn't going to be handed to them on a plate: "We're looking to go to teams and win, that's our aim.

"As I always say, we'll respect Northampton. They're not having the best of times at the moment, but it doesn't change anything for us. It's another team, a decent team that are going to want to get in our faces, going to want to upset us, going to want to beat us. We're the same, we want to do that to them.

"We will be looking for the three points, but it's not going to come easy, we've got to work hard for it".

Following Saturday's 4-0 defeat to Mansfield, Northampton boss Dean Austin departed the Cobblers.  They wasted no time in bringing in his replacement; former Carlisle United manager, Keith Curle.

The hosts currently sit in 21st place in Sky Bet League Two, having accumulated 7 points from their opening 10 games of the season.  Saturday's result meant that they have picked up 2 points from their last 5 games, in comparison to the Shakers' 12.

From their 6 home games so far, they are yet to register a win.  Their record shows 3 draws and 3 defeats, scoring 4 and conceding 8.
