TEAM NEWS

Speaking on Thursday, Brady provided the following update ahead of the match.

“Sam Hoskins has had a scan and he will be out for a few weeks,” he said.

“I’m careful of putting an exact timeframe on it but if we get him back within a month that would be a bonus. We hope it is more of a short term thing and it could have been worse.

“Sam Sherring hasn’t trained this week and we will have to assess him again before the weekend.

“Injuries have made it difficult to keep a consistent backline, we pride ourselves on our defensive capabilities but having to chop and change does make a big difference in terms of detail especially when it comes to set pieces.

“We have to try and cope with that and adapt, that’s the situation and we have to deal with it.

“We aren’t expecting anyone else back for the weekend, we are still building Ben Fox’s minutes, it was good to see him back out on the pitch last weekend and it’s great to have him back.”

Northampton Town lost 2-1 away to Bolton Wanderers in the reverse fixture in October.

The Trotters raced into a two-goal lead inside the opening 20 minutes, Randell Williams hitting the post and Dion Charles finishing on the rebound before Williams fired home himself.

Sam Hoskins ran onto Bolton captain Ricardo Santos’ loose pass and was denied by ‘keeper Nathan Baxter as the Cobblers threatened to halve the deficit.

They did just that when stand-in skipper Hoskins headed in Manny Monthé’s cross, but the goal proved to only be a consolation as the hosts held on to secure all three points.
