Stat Attack: Notts County hoping to turn corner in Northampton Town trip


Notts County have met Northampton Town 55 times in their history.

Notts: 27
Draws: 11
Northampton: 17

Notts met Northampton for the first time on November 22nd, 1930 in Division 3 South, drawing 2-2.

The last time Notts met The Cobblers was in the 2015-16 season with Town winning 2-1 at Meadow Lane and the reverse fixture finishing 2-2 at Sixfields with Thierry Audel and Jon Stead getting the goals for a Notts team under the stewardship of Mark Cooper.

Notts did the double over Northampton in the title winning 2009-10 season, winning 5-2 at Meadow Lane and 1-0 at Sixfields.

Since 2000, the two teams have met 15 times with Notts winning 5, drawing 4 and losing 6.


Northampton have only won once this season with the sole win coming away at Colchester. Matt Crooks and Billy Waters were the goalscorers in a 2-1 win.

They are on a run of three winless games and haven’t won at home this season.

Notts still haven’t won this season but there were some positives to take out of the home draw with Stevenage.

The attack looks like it’s getting better and Enzio Boldewijn and Kane Hemmings are improving.


There only season in the top flight, came in the 1965-66 season.

They moved to their current home at Sixfields in the 1994-95 season.

The Cobblers are two-time winners of the Fourth Division and have also won the Third Division once. Town have also won the Southern League once.

Northampton hold the record for being promoted from the 4th tier to the first and relegated back down to the fourth again at only nine years (promoted from fourth division 1960-61, relegated to fourth division 1968-69).

Seasons in each division

Division 1 (or Premier League): 1
Division 2 (or Championship): 3
Division 3 (or League One): 49
Division 4 (or League Two): 38

Northampton were in the Southern League and Midland League before being elected to the Football League in 1920.

Team news

Northampton Town will be without suspended defender Aaron Pierre, who was sent off just before the hour mark of last weekend's 2-0 loss to Port Vale and must serve a one-match ban.

Striker Junior Morais is definitely sidelined while Daniel Powell is also set to miss out - both have hamstring issues - and Shaun McWilliams is a doubt with a foot injury.

The Cobblers have only won one match so far this season and manager Dean Austin could make changes after being frustrated by their performance against Vale.

New signings Jamie Turley and Cedric Evina both made their debuts against Stevenage but the former only lasted 45 minutes after appearing to hurt his ribs.

If he is not fit, Matt Tootle is likely to come into the starting line-up having replaced Turley in his own return from injury.

Midfielder Andy Kellett could come back into contention following injury but Dan Jones serves the last game of his three-match ban while Richard Duffy and Ben Hall are still expected to be unavailable.
