"Our togetherness is our strength," says Romeo

Lions defender relishing a return to The Den

Mahlon Romeo has praised the team spirit and determination in the Lions' camp as they seek to extend their unbeaten run to four against Northampton Town this afternoon.

The race to the play-offs looks set to go down to the wire and, after coming from behind to draw with Gillingham at the weekend, Romeo believes his side have proved they can get a result from their remaining matches even if they find themselves chasing the game.

"Never count us out," Romeo told

"Despite giving Gillingham an early lead, I think we were unfortunate not to make it three wins on the spin."

"In the end it was a good point because we have moved into the play-off places, but we all felt we could have gone on to win it."

The Lions have moved back into the play-off positions, having beaten Shrewsbury and Scunthorpe before last weekend's trip to The Gills.

"They were different types of performances that we had to put in recently. We had to grind a result out against Shrewsbury and then it was an all-round team performance against Scunthorpe and Gillingham, moving the ball really well and I thought we were unlucky not to win all of those matches.

"We are confident and excited to get back to The Den and in front of our fans and give them plenty to cheer about."

Meanwhile, the Cobblers have no fresh injury concerns ahead of their trip to SE16. 

Defender Brendan Moloney made his first start since October in the defeat to Sheffield United following a knee injury and could keep his place in the starting XI.

Midfielder John-Joe O'Toole remains unavailable as he recovers from a groin injury while Aaron Phillips and Jak McCourt could return for Justin Edinburgh's side after being dropped last time out.
