TEAM NEWS

Speaking on Tuesday, Jon Brady saif he is expecting to see the return of at least one of his injured players at the weekend.

“Potentially we might have a player back for the weekend but we will just have to wait and see," he said.

“One player may start a phased return on Saturday but other than that we are still waiting.

"We won't sign anyone just for the sake of it, it has to be right for us as a football club and it has to be right for the player and we have to make sure it is someone that can add to us as a group, if we don't find that we are happy with what we have in the building."

Northampton Town lost 3-0 at home to Portsmouth in the reverse fixture in December.

Mitch Pinnock and Sam Hoskins were both denied by Will Norris as the Cobblers created two early opportunities.

Sean Raggett headed home from Jack Sparkes’ corner to open the scoring for the visitors shortly afterwards.

Paddy Lane ran onto Christian Saydee’s through ball and lofted the ball over Max Thompson to double his side’s lead on the half-an-hour mark.

Kieron Bowie missed a chance to halve the deficit when he headed wide from a promising position late in the first half.

Lane added his second goal and Portsmouth’s third early in the second period to secure all three points and send the South Coast-side top of the league.
