TEAM NEWS: CROOKS A DOUBT FOR OLDHAM CLASH

All the team news ahead of Northampton Town v Oldham Athletic

4 May 2018

Midfielder Matt Crooks (hamstring) is a doubt for Saturday’s final game of the season at home to Oldham, KO 5.30pm, while Aaron Phillips (thigh) remains sidelined.

"Matt has been struggling with his hamstring for a while now," said caretaker boss Dean Austin.

"He had cramp after about 60 minutes on Saturday and I could see he was struggling.

"We will monitor him in training before making a decision for Saturday."

Austin has meanwhile confirmed that youngsters Sean Whaler and Morgan Roberts could potentially feature against the Latics.

"They have both trained with the group again this week and have done really well," he said.

"They will both definitely be in the squad and I feel that one of them will be on the bench at the very least."

Sam Foley and Brendan Moloney came into the Cobblers side as the curtain came down on the 2017/18 season. Matt Crooks (hamstring) missed out while Morgan Roberts from the academy was named on the bench.

Ash Taylor headed wide from a Matt Grimes corner and Richard O’Donnell saved from Duckens Nazon as both sides traded chances midway through the first half.

Oldham took the lead as the game approached the half hour mark, George Edmundson with a shot from 10-yards.

Matt Grimes had the Cobblers back on level terms from the penalty spot before half-time, the spot-kick awarded when Oldham goalkeeper Johny Placide brought down Sam Hoskins. Grimes stepped up and fired his penalty into the top corner to make it 1-1.

The Cobblers then took the lead deep into first half stoppage time, Ash Taylor firing the ball home from close range after Leon Barnett's shot had been clawed on to the post as Oldham failed to clear a Grimes free-kick.

Thomas Haymer headed home from a free-kick to restore parity ten minutes into the second half. The goal came against the run of play but with Oldham needing a win to ensure their place in Sky Bet League 1 substitute Craig Davies spurned a good chance on a topsy-turvy evening at Sixfields.

Placide made a good save to keep out a Grimes free-kick as the game, and the season, entered the final ten minutes.

Oldham pressed for a late winner but the Cobblers defended well to ensure the game ended 2-2, 17-year old Morgan Roberts coming on in stoppage time to make his debut.

Northampton Town have been working closely with the police and the EFL to review security at Sixfields. Now we are asking you to do your bit.

It is vital that everyone - players, staff and supporters - remain vigilant and report any concerns to stewards or police.

Attacks might be rare, and the chance of you being caught up in one unlikely, but the message is #ActionCountersTerrorism.

Here's a quick reminder of what you can do to help keep yourself and others safe:
• Arrive early, allowing more time for security checks 
• Minimise what you carry, fewer bag searches will speed up entry to the ground 
• Be vigilant at all times and if you see anything suspicious, tell a steward right away 
• If you see anything that could pose an immediate threat to safety, call 999 
• In an emergency, listen to the Public Address instructions and follow them 
• If told to evacuate, do so immediately, do not wait around to film events on your mobile 
• Move right away from the stadium as quickly as possible for your safety and to allow clear access for any emergency vehicles 
• Once you are safe, follow Northamptonshire Police on Twitter for updates

POLITE NOTICE: Supporters are reminded that only food and drink purchased within the stadium should be consumed on the stadium premises please. Thank you.
