KEVIN VAN VEEN AVAILABLE TO MAKE COBBLERS DEBUT AT SIXFIELDS ON SATURDAY

All the team news ahead of Northampton Town v Rochdale

2 February 2018

New signing Kevin van Veen is available to make his Northampton Town debut, while Joe Bunney is expected to be passed fit to face his former club Rochdale at Sixfields on Saturday after suffering a dead leg in the draw at Blackburn.

Aarons Pierre and Phillips (both thigh) remain sidelined for Saturday's game while Shaun McWilliams, who missed the game at Ewood Park through illness, is available for selection.

"Joe didn't train earlier in the week but we don't envisage any problems for the weekend," confirmed boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

Another new signing, Everton loanee Boris Mathis, is also in contention for a place in the matchday squad on Saturday.

"Competition is healthy for everybody," said the Cobblers boss.

"Injuries and fatigue happen in football and you need to be able to freshen things up.

"We can only select five of the six loans we have decisions to make."
