Team News

On Thursday Micky Mellon revealed that a few players need to be assessed ahead of Saturday's game but would not disclose who specifically.

One to Watch

Paul Lewis

Midfielder Paul Lewis makes his return to Prenton Park, having swapped Rovers for Northampton in the summer.

Lewis, 26, began his career at Macclesfield and played over 90 league games for the club before moving to Cambridge.

In 2017, he signed for Cambridge, staying at the Abbey Stadium until 2020, where he joined Tranmere.

Lewis scored six times in 40 league game last season for Rovers, before making the switch to the PTS Academy Stadium

Manager

Jon Brady

Jon Brady was appointed as permanent Northampton manager in May 2021, having initally been in charge at the club on a caretaker basis after the sacking of Keith Curle.

The Australian enjoyed spells at Hayes, Rushden & Diamonds, and Kettering before going into management. In 2009, he was appointed manager of Brackley Town.

In 2015, he left Brackley. The following year, he joined Northampton as Under-16s manager, and was promoted to Under-18s manager the year after that.

After four years managing the Cobblers’ Under-18s, he was appointed as caretaker manager of the first-team in February 2021.
