I'm sorry everybody, but it looks like I'm coming to jinx this one for us. Mind you it's only two or three games a season.

That's it, abandon us all in Asia. How can you escape? As soon as you can get in a game you're off!

Have a good flight!

That's probably cheaper than a train from Northampton to Barrow?

After Port Vale and Colchester we have Rochdale, 3 teams who in a total of 9 league games have between them not registered a single victory and are all in the bottom 3rd of the division. Port Vale after losing to us have 2 home 0-0 draws so have yet to score a goal. Colchester also have 2 draws and finally found the back of the net last night in a 1-1 draw with Mansfield. Rochdale appear to have more of a goal threat as they have scored 3 times but have also conceded 5, nobody in the division has conceded more. So far they lost 2-3 away to Harrogate who scored their winner in added time, drew 0-0 at home to Sc***horpe and last night lost 1-2 at home to FGR.
Expect a big drop in attendance from the 5800 against Port Vale as in their 2 home games Rochdale have had crowds of 2679 and 2188. Cannot see them bringing more than 2-300 so we will probably have about 5000.
Therefor we appear to have started the season with a relatively easy set of fixtures with sterner tests to come. But they say you can only beat what is put in front of you, let's hope we continue to do that on Saturday.

You could say that the two wins are even better as they have both only lost once this season.
Meanwhile, our old friend Keith is probably feeling some early pressure.

I'm sure there'll be plenty of twists and turns this season but it's an unusual feeling to have such a great start.

When looking at the head to head I noticed we've not beaten them since 2013.

With that in mind, I'm going for a 1-1 draw.

Indeed, Rochdale visit Sixfields on Saturday. Last season this was a league 1 fixture but of course both teams suffered relegation, Dales valiant effort saw them fall just a point short of Wigan. They did score 61 League goals, which was more than many teams including promoted Blackpool, however they shipped 78, one of the worst totals in the division.

So far this season a solitary point has been gained, a goalless draw with Scunny, sandwiched by single goal defeats to Harrogate and most recently Forest Green. They did receive a bye in the Carabao Cup as Harrogate were unable to field a team due to a Covid outbreak a couple of days after the League encounter.

Dale are perennial basement division members, they went 36 consecutive seasons in the fourth division (actually finishing bottom in both 1978 and 1980 but being re-elected) before a long awaited promotion to the third tier in 2010 thanks in the main to the goalscoring boots of Chris O'Grady (22 league goals). Sadly they only survived two seasons before relegation back to League 2, but then having got a taste for promotion they managed it again in 2014 where they remained until last season. Former Cobbler Ian Henderson was top scorer for six seasons in a row between 2014 and 2020.

41 year old Robbie Stockdale is the Dale manager, his first managerial appointment aside for a couple of short caretaker stints at Sunderland. He took over from Brian Barry-Murphy who left the club following relegation. Stockdale is a former player most notable for a spell at Middlesbrough plus loan spells with Sheffield Wednesday and West Ham. He hung up his boots in 2011 and has had coaching assignments at Grimsby, Sunderland, Hibernian and West Brom.

A relatively quiet post season saw the departures of last seasons top scorer Matty Lund (to Salford), the experienced Stephen Humphrys (Wigan) and exciting talent Kwadwo Baah (to Watford),incoming have included Aidan White (formerly of Leeds) and Conor Grant from Sheffield Wednesday.

There have been 65 games between the Cobblers and Dale, Rochdale slightly ahead with 21 wins to 20, but 24 draws. In the League we hold the upper hand 20-19. We have not won any of our last 10 games against Dale, two FA Cup games and eight in the league have seen us draw five and lose five. You have to go back to February 2013 to find a Cobblers victory, 3-1 at Sixfields thanks to goals from Platt, Langmead and Akinfenwa.
Last season both games ended in draws, goalless at Sixfields and 1-1 at the Crown Oil Arena with a Harry Smith goal cancelled out by a late equaliser by the now departed Humphrys.

Referee Carl Brook will take charge of the game, its his second year on the League list and so far in his three games this season he has shown a red card in each of them. 18 yellows too in those three games, that follows on from a round 100 yellows handed out last season. It will be his first visit to Sixfields, although we did see him twice last season, in our Papa Johns win at Exeter and in the League draw away at Gillingham in April, he booked a combined 7 Cobblers over the two games. following our game at Gillingham he took charge of Rochdales visit to Wimbledon three days later, the crunch relegation clash ending in a 3-3 draw.

Infuriating for Keith Curle I'd imagine, Oldham team not getting the fundamentals right, needing to buy into the DNA of what Keith is all about...and having the bare faced audacity to try and play the ball into the box!

I don't think Curle has been around for a couple of games as he had/has Covid. Colin West handled the post match presser last night.
