It will be all-change for Stevenage again when they travel to Northampton – but manager Teddy Sheringham is confident they can continue to adapt.

Stevenage go in to tomorrow’s (Saturday) game on the back of a three game undefeated run.

In that time they have drawn away at Exeter and Portsmouth and beaten Wycombe at home.

And Sheringham says each one has been tough, but different, and he expects another change in style at Sixfields.

He said: “We said at the start of the week, after we drew with Exeter, it was going to be a tough week and we’re going into the third game of that.

“We knew Wycombe were going to be tough, Portsmouth was going to be a different tough game. And tomorrow is going to be just as tough but in a different manner.

“Northampton will be causing us problems in a different way to the first two and we need to make sure we’re ready for what they throw at us.”

Northampton lie fifth in the Sky Bet League Two table, three points behind an automatic promotion spot.

And the Boro boss is expecting physical encounter.

He said: “They are a big and strong team, very organised. I’ve been very impressed when I’ve seen them.

“I’ll be letting my players know what to expect from them. Again we need to be at the top of our game if we’re going to get anything out of it.

“They’ll ask us questions which we need to answer.”

Sheringham didn’t give much a way with regards to team news but he did reveal they are monitoring the knock sustained to the knee of Dean Parrett in the draw with Pompey.

He said: “Because of the way Dean plays the game, he plays it 100-mile-an-hour. He’s an active, strong running player, but he gets little niggly injuries, stretching for balls into big tackles.

“He’s had a couple of niggles already this season, he’s got another one now which we’ll keep an eye on.”
