County go into a tough-looking away day buoyed by four points from a possible six in manager Graham Coughlan's two games in charge so far.
Northampton are currently 3rd in the League Two table as they occupy one of the automatic promotion places, but the Cobblers may be on a low after a midweek 2-2 draw with Sutton after they were 2-0 up.
County meanwhile gained an impressive point at 4th-placed Mansfield on Tuesday night, and were the better side in the 0-0 draw at Field Mill.
It followed up an important 1-0 win over Colchester last Saturday as County are yet to concede a goal under the reign of Coughlan.
Northampton will try and put that to the test tomorrow though with Sam Hoskins currently the league's top scorer with 11 goals in 12 games so far.
Newport will be without Offrande Zanzala who has had a slight setback in his recovery from injury, but that is the club's only fresh injury concern going into the weekend.
Exiles fans will be aware that Northampton away is a bit of a hoodoo, with no win in that part of the world since 1977.
Supporters are reminded that tomorrow's match kicks off at the earlier time of 2pm.
