The Cobblers have been dealt a big injury blow with the news that skipper Lee Collins has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a foot tendon injury.
“It is a major blow and he will undoubtedly be a big miss for us,” said boss Chris Wilder.
“I’ve been really impressed with Lee, not just as a player but as a personality and it is times like this when you want your big characters who relish the challenge.
“Lee is definitely a big character but it’s something we’ve just got to deal with and he’s now just got to focus on getting ready for pre-season.
“I don’t want to make too many more changes to the squad because we’ve done that now but with Lee’s injury that might be an area that we do look at.
“It's a key area and it's important that we can be as strong as possible in that department.”
