Midfielder making excellent progress

9 August 2018

Northampton Town have received good news on the fitness of midfielder Shaun McWilliams.

McWilliams picked up a hamstring injury during the game against Lincoln City last week leading to fears of a lengthy spell on the sidelines, but manager Dean Austin says that is not likely to be the case.

"The scan results were very encouraging," he said.

"The injury isn't as bad as we first feared and in addition to that, he has made terrific progress this week and is improving daily.

"We won't take any risks with him of course, but such has been his progress we are keeping all of our options open in terms of a return and we haven't totally ruled him out of anything at this stage.

"He will keep working with the medical staff and we will see how he goes from now until Saturday before making any decisions.

"Junior Morias came through the midweek reserve game well, so we will head north with a number of strong selection decisions to make and as a manager, that is a good position to be in."
