He has missed recent defeats at Rotherham and Bury with a calf injury but is expected to make his comeback this weekend.

Will Nightingale will miss out, owing to a knee injury.

Dean Parrett is also not yet ready to return, though he is nearing match fitness.

Shay Facey is a doubt for Northampton with a hamstring problem.

The former Manchester City defender came off in the first half of Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Rochdale.

Brendan Moloney missed the game with a knee issue but is now fit and stands by to replace Facey in defence.

Aaron Pierre and Aaron Phillips are long-term absentees and are not expected back for a month at the earliest.
