Recent respective form guides
Bury's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Shakers have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.
Northampton's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Cobblers have hit 9 goals, 14 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Bury's 16 points from 11 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 11th position. Northampton are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola League Two having mustered a points tally of 11 from their 11 matches played.
