TEAM NEWS: MORIAS TO BE ASSESSED

Junior set to miss Checkatrade Trophy tie

4 September 2018

Striker Junior Morias will miss Tuesday night’s Checkatrade Trophy tie against Wycombe Wanderers after picking up a hamstring injury in Saturday’s draw with Tranmere. Shaun MCwilliams (hamstring) could however be involved.

"Junior will be assessed this week," confirmed boss Dean Austin.

"I will make some changes just because we have one or two carrying little niggles.

"We've got a very strong squad and we don't want to take risks with people we don't need to.

"Everyone is working hard and we have players who deserve an opportunity. With Junior out there is at least one place up for grabs on Saturday and it's upto the players who come in to try and stake a claim.."

Just three weeks after their first round meeting in the Carabao Cup, the Cobblers and Wycombe Wanderers came up against each other in the Checkatrade Trophy. Shaun McWilliams, back from a hamstring injury picked up on the opening day of the season, captained a side which also included centre-back Jay Williams from the club’s academy.

Scott Kashket drew an early save from Lewis Ward and it was the aforementioned Kashket who opened the scoring on 11 minutes with a fine strike into the top corner.

Alex Samuel on the stretch couldn’t convert Nick Freeman’s cross and Ward saved from Paris Cowan-Hall as Wycombe went close to a second. Anthony Stewart blocked a goal-bound effort from Dean Bowditch in a half-chance for the Cobblers and it was the League 1 side who led at the break.

The Cobblers upped the tempo at the start of the second half, Billy Waters firing over the bar following a corner. Wycombe continued to look dangerous at the other end though with a deflected effort from Cowan-Hall and a shot just wide from Kashket.

Waters tried a shot from 30-yards that had Yves Ma-Kalambay scrambling before Dean Austin made a change, Academy graduate Sean Whaler coming on to make his Cobblers debut.

A goal-line clearance from Sido Jombati denied Bowditch late on and Wycombe claimed the win. The Cobblers next game in the competition is a trip to Oxford United on Tuesday 9 October.

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 6.30pm.


Northampton Town have been working closely with the police and the EFL to review security. 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.
