"They did try to pass the ball a little bit more than what they had done previously" says Blues first-team coach

Matt Gill expects a different style of play from Northampton when they visit Portman Road this evening.

Former boss Keith Curle was known for a direct approach in his time at PTS Academy Stadium before parting ways with the Cobblers following last week's defeat to Wigan.

Caretaker manager Jon Brady took charge of Saturday's home loss to Burton and will be in the dugout once again tonight.

Town's first-team coach said: "The lads and ourselves have done a little bit of footage work on Northampton. 

"They approached the game slightly differently against Burton. They did try to pass the ball a little bit more than what they had done previously.

"They obviously were quite direct under Keith. They had unbelievable success last year getting them promoted in a really tough spell for the club. His work shouldn't go unnoticed.

"You have to be flexible. Teams are going to be flexible and teams are going to change. I would like to think that the majority of work that we do is on us and how we're going to effect the game and take the intiative. We need to be really positive going into the game."
