Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd has provided an injury update on striker Clive Platt (back) and winger Ishmel Demontagnac (hamstring).


“Clive will have a fitness test on Friday,” he said.


“I’ve wrapped him up in cotton wool a little bit because the last thing I want to do is play him and then lose him for the rest of the season.


“We really are taking it day-to-day with Clive because he is such a huge player for us in many different ways and to have him on the pitch or available to be on the pitch is great.


“He was touch and go for the game at Bradford but the pitch there was very hard and I wasn’t sure it was the right type of pitch for him.


“He’s had another week of treatment and rehab now so fingers crossed if he comes through the fitness test okay he will be available for Saturday.


“Ish is making really good progress and he may still play a part this season.


“When it’s a hamstring you have to be careful but he may be back sooner than we first thought.


“I do have options which is good and we can play in a variety of different ways and with a variety of different systems.


“It may be an opportunity for Jake Robinson or I could bring Luke Guttridge or Lewis Hornby back into the team just to firm it up a little bit to make sure that we get the result that we need.”
