Brewers boss, Paul Peschisolido was impressed with his sides display in the 2-0 victory over Lincoln City last week and will mostly likely name an unchanged side on Saturday as they host Northampton at the Pirelli Stadium.

Michael Simpson looks to keep his place in the starting line up and will form a partnership with John McGrath in the midfield. Ryan Austin will likely stay at right back as Tony James and Guy Branston contiune there partnership in the heart of the defence.

Northampton were relegated from League 1 last year, are riding a two game winning streak and currently sit in sixth.

The Brewers will have a tough time if they want to keep another clean sheet as they face Cobbler`s leading striker, Adebayo Akinfenwa.
