MOLONEY HOPING TO BE FIT FOR DONS VISIT

All the team news ahead of Northampton Town v AFC Wimbledon

12 October 2017

Right-back Brendan Moloney (hamstring) is hoping to be fit for the visit of AFC Wimbledon on Saturday while striker Chris Long (also hamstring) could return.

The Cobblers will however definitely be without Alex Revell who is set to serve a three-match ban following his sending off against Bristol Rovers.

“Brendan went for a scan a little earlier this week,” said Cobblers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

“We don’t think he has a tear but we need to know for sure.

“We will see what comes back from the scan but with a little bit of luck he might be okay for Saturday.

“John-Joe O'Toole is in full training and that’s a big plus but he might be at least another week away. We want to get some game time into him if we can.

“Chris Long is running again, he is touch and go for the weekend but Sam Hoskins and Shaun McWilliams are both fine.

“Lewis McGugan is working hard but he is still a little way off. The talent is there but we need to keep working him hard and we need to get that trust and urgency back in his game.

“Alex misses the next three games but it’s an opportunity for others and I might have to be a little bit creative in that area.”

Shaun McWilliams, Lewis McGugan, Daniel Powell, Billy Waters and Sam Hoskins all came into the side as boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink made five changes for the visit of AFC Wimbledon. Alex Revell (suspended) and Marc Richards (thigh strain) joined the list of absentees. John-Joe O’Toole (groin) was named on the bench for the first time this season.

Chances were at a premium in the first half but it took a 42nd minute finger tip save from Dons keeper George Long to touch a powerful Daniel Powell shot over the bar.

Powell headed wide following a positive start to the second half from the Cobblers. There was a moment of danger at the other end when McWilliams did well to intercept a header at the back post from Andy Barcham.

Wimbledon made the breakthrough on 61 minutes, Lyle Taylor playing in Harry Forrester and his shot went in off the post despite Cobblers keeper Matt Ingram getting a hand to it.

The Cobblers responded well to falling behind, a vital clearance denying Sam Hoskins a certain equaliser from Ash Taylor's driven cross.

Barcham fired over from 10-yards before John-Joe O’Toole came on with just over ten minutes to go. Fellow substitute Dean Bowditch then went close with a shot from distance.

Sam Foley had a shot blocked as the Cobblers pressed in stoppage time but there was to be no late equaliser for the home side and the Dons held on to claim the three points.

Ticket News

PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY FOR THE AFC WIMBLEDON GAME

Tickets available on arrival

13 October 2017

Northampton Town welcome AFC Wimbledon to Sixfields on Saturday.

Tickets for the game will be on sale on arrival. Please visit the main ticket office if you are looking to purchase tickets.

If collecting pre-ordered match tickets, please visit the ticket point opposite the main entrance, if collecting season tickets please visit the main ticket office.

Please note that tickets for forthcoming games and season tickets are still on sale, but for the hour before kick off the ticket office will be selling AFC Wimbledon match tickets only.

Remember, you can beat the queues by buying match tickets via ntfcdirect.co.uk and printing your tickets at home! 

As part of increased security measures, a 100% search policy will be in operation. Because of this, supporters are advised to arrive as early as possible. Turnstiles will be open from 1pm.

Three points isn't the only priority on Saturday, making sure everyone goes home safe is the most important result.

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.

Following the dreadful Manchester Arena bombing in May, stadium managers from clubs have been briefed by counter terrorism police.

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
