The Millers slipped to their seventh home defeat of the season last week when they went down 3-1 to rock-bottom Bristol Rovers, which came hot on the heels of another dismal display in a 2-0 loss to Barnet.

Those results have seen Evans' men slip down to ninth in League Two, though they remain only three points off the top three.

The Cobblers travel to South Yorkshire at the weekend with five wins from their last seven games and Evans hopes the challenge will bring the best out of his side.

"It's a great chance to respond," Evans said.

"Northampton are the form team in League Two, they will be the biggest team that supporters see this season in terms of bulk and size, they are very direct, they get the ball into the box at every opportunity, so we know what to expect.

"It's about what we do, though, if we don't perform we will have no chance of winning."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
