Jon Brady is waiting on the fitness of Jordan Willis and Shaun McWilliams ahead of Saturday’s visit from Shrewsbury Town.

Both players are rated as 'touch and go' after being substituted in the midweek win at Charlton.

“We are still monitoring Shaun and Jordan,” he said.

“They are touch and go for the weekend but we will wait and see.

“We have got a few injuries at the moment but it’s nice to be back in the rhythm of playing games and we are looking forward to the challenge on Saturday.”

Northampton Town conceded an added-time winner in a 1-0 defeat away to Shrewsbury Town in the reverse fixture in October.

Tom Bayliss sent a free-kick across the face of goal and Ryan Bowman blazed over from a good position as the hosts came close to opening the scoring.

The Cobblers also had opportunities to take the lead, Mitch Pinnock having a powerful shot parried away by Marko Marosi before the ‘keeper denied Louis Appéré’s poke towards the near post.

The visitors’ best chance came going into the final quarter-of-an-hour when Tom Flanagan conceded a penalty, but Sam Hoskins smashed his spot-kick off the crossbar.

Daniel Udoh placed a shot into the bottom corner to snatch all three points for his side late on.
