The Opposition: The lowdown on Plymouth Argyle's opponents Northampton Town
NORTHAMPTON have assembled a strong, experienced squad as they push for promotion from League Two.
Manager Aidy Boothroyd has recently bolstered the ranks at Sixfields Stadium with two recruits who have played at a much higher level.
They are versatile former Wolves and Barnsley defender Lee Collins and ex-Sunderland and Coventry City striker Roy O'Donovan (pictured).
Both players have moved to the Cobblers on contracts until the end of the season.

Boothroyd had previously signed 27-year-old O'Donovan in June 2010 when he was the manager of Coventry.
O'Donovan and Jake Robinson provide pace and movement in attack for Northampton, while Adebayo Akinfenwa (see One to Watch) and Clive Platt are powerful forwards who can lead the line very effectively.
Between them, the quartet provide strike options which Argyle, with five goals in their last eight games, can only envy.
Collins, who was released by Barnsley during the January transfer window, is set to play at left-back for Northampton against Argyle because Joe Widdowson is starting a two-match suspension.
Widdowson was booked for the 10th time this season in the draw against Wimbledon.
