The Cobblers will still be without Matt Crooks (suspension) for the midweek visit of Shrewsbury Town with striker Chris Long, who missed the weekend defeat to Rotherham with a minor back injury, also a doubt.
“We have to think about changes after the performance at the weekend,” said boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
“It was a very tough match on Saturday and it’s a quick turnaround.
“We have players on the bench and in the squad who can come in and they will be ready if called upon.
“We are still monitoring Chris Long but it’s good to have Kevin van Veen back.
“Kevin Luckassen is still building up his fitness but we will certainly look at the possibility of playing both of them together.”
