Sam Sherring is still sidelined due to the injury he picked up at Stevenage, Saturday is also likely to come a bit too soon for Sam Hoskins who has missed the last two matches. The Cobblers will be without goalkeeper Max Thompson as his loan from Newcastle United has now expired but Lee Burge is now fit again and expected to return to the side.
