GRIMES AND POOLE ABSENT FOR EMIRATES FA CUP REPLAY

Midfield duo unavailable for Scunthorpe trip

14 November 2017

The Cobblers will be without Matt Grimes (suspended) and Regan Poole (international duty) for Tuesday night’s Emirates FA Cup first round replay at Scunthorpe United.

Grimes is set to serve a one-match ban after picking up his fifth booking of the campaign at Oxford on Saturday while Poole is currently away with the Wales under 21s.

Daniel Powell is a doubt after coming off in Saturday’s game at Oxford but John-Joe O’Toole is set to feature at Glanford Park.

“John-Joe will be available but I don’t know about Daniel,” said boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

“John-Joe was always going to come off on Saturday, I took a bit of a risk playing him but I felt we needed his presence in the middle of the park and he came through fine."
