Match Previews


Team news ahead of Notts County's visit to the PTS Academy Stadium

21 September 2018

Defender Aaron Pierre is set to serve a one-match ban following his sending off at Port Vale.

Leon Barnett, Shaun McWilliams and Daniel Powell could however all be back in contention for the visit of Notts County on Saturday.

“We have one or two minor issues but we also have one or two players coming back,” said boss Dean Austin.

“I’m not happy with not winning and I won’t hesitate to change things. I have to find a winning formula with what I have.

“I feel that there are a lot of positives in our play and I’m not going to change our style but I am well aware of the areas where we need to improve.”

Leon Barnett replaced the suspended Aaron Pierre at centre-half while Hakeem Odoffin, Dean Bowditch and John-Joe O’Toole also all came into the side as boss Dean Austin made four changes for the visit of Notts County to the PTS Academy Stadium. Shaun McWilliams was back on the bench after recovering from a foot injury.

O’Toole headed over in a high tempo first few minutes from the Cobblers while Lewis Alessandra fired over for County. Bowditch created an opening for Matt Crooks midway through the first half and it needed a good save from Ross Fitzsimons to maintain the equilibrium.

The Cobblers were pressing but O’Toole couldn’t direct his header either side of Fitzsimons before Kane Hemmings headed over following a County counter-attack. Jon Stead also had a chance just before half-time but the experienced striker failed to work David Cornell in the Cobblers goal.

Cornell had to punch away a deflected Alessandra effort at the start of the second half and David Buchanan fired wide after the ball was played back to him by Kevin van Veen. The atmosphere was tense with the game still very much in the balance.

Hemmings unleashed a shot that needed a strong hand from Cornell to turn the ball behind for a corner. O’Toole then went agonisingly close with a header that landed on the roof of the net, Fitzsimons getting the faintest of touches. Barnett headed wide from the subsequent corner as Jack Bridge came on for Bowditch.

Barnett was denied by a good save from Fitzsimons from another Cobblers corner while some good work from Sam Hoskins nearly lead to an own goal by Matt Tootle. Four minutes of injury time were added on but neither side could make the breakthrough and the game ended goalless despite some late penalty appeals from County and van Veen firing a shot wide on the angle.

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

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

• 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.
