Cobblers boss Keith Curle previews Saturday’s trip to Shrewsbury, Northampton Town's first away league game of the season.
“This season is a clean canvas for us, we are still learning and it’s important we keep establishing our identity."
“Aaron was a great servant for us, he is a terrific character to have in the changing room and he is also a genuinely nice guy," he said.
Curle still has a number of players unavailable for selection but he believes that is a problem facing not only Northampton Town at the start of the season.
“We’ve looked at the injuries and discussed whether or not we have been doing enough or too much with the players but it is probably just down to fatigue.
“Fatigue can be seen as you are not fit enough but it is not that, we’ve had a short break followed by a quick bank of games. Premier League players are struggling with fatigue injuries and it is probably just inevitable at the start of the season.
“We will become more robust in two or three weeks time when we have that time for rest and recovery.”
