On the back of two consecutive wins, Bolton Wanderers head to Sixfields this weekend to take on Northampton Town. Northampton, who haven't won in the league since the end of October, will look to win to push up the table and into the top half. This will be the first time Bolton and Northampton have met in the league since February 1990, a game that Bolton won 2-0. The two sides have only faced eleven times, with both teams claiming five wins each.

A win for Bolton could see them leap Sheffield United in the table and move into the automatic promotion places.
