Cobblers boss Jon Brady has been dealt an injury blow with on-loan Cardiff City striker Chanka Zimba facing a spell on the sidelines.
“Chanka is going to be out for six weeks with a hamstring injury,” confirmed Brady.
“It’s a bit of a body blow for us, we have integrated Chanka into the group really well by managing his load with 20 minutes here and there for the first few weeks but he felt the issue on Saturday.
“Joseph Mills has suffered a bit of a setback with his ankle this week but hopefully that’s not too serious.
“Losing Chanka is a blow but I believe in my group and we'll continue to give it the best we’ve got.”
