Match Preview

Thomas worry for Robins Cheltenham will hand a late fitness test to Wes Thomas ahead of their home clash against Northampton. The striker, Town`s top scorer this term with seven goals, missed both last weekend`s 2-0 victory at Aldershot and Tuesday`s 2-0 trophy defeat to Plymouth with the thigh strain he sustained against Oxford. Thomas will be given until as late as possible to prove his availability, with a fitness test planned for Saturday lunchtime. Midfielder JJ Melligan will definitely miss out against the Cobblers as he rests a strained hamstring picked up against Aldershot. Frankie Artus hopes to be given the all-clear on Monday following his cracked fibula, with a view to returning to training on Tuesday. Defender Martin Riley (hamstring) is also hoping to be back in training next week. Northampton could have defender Dean Beckwith back in their squad. Beckwith has missed the last five matches with a thigh strain but returned to training this week and could go straight back into the side at Whaddon Road. Manager Ian Sampson will be without forward Courtney Herbert for the trip. Herbert sat out the 2-0 defeat at Macclesfield last weekend with a calf injury and scans have shown he has a stress fracture and could be out for at least three weeks. Left-back Marcus Hall is fully fit after a hamstring injury while fellow defender Craig Hinton is close to a return from a knee injury. Striker Tadhg Purcell is out for the entire season after he suffered serious knee ligament damage in August.

Match Report

Smikle all smiles Brian Smikle's second-half goal gave Cheltenham a 1-0 win over 10-man Northampton. A dull first half was only enlivened by the 22nd-minute sending-off of Northampton's Dean Beckwith. The big defender received a red card when referee Dave Phillips adjudged him guilty of stamping on Shaun Jeffers after they tangled on the ground in an off-the-ball incident. The Cobblers' best chance came when home keeper Scott Brown's athletic fingertip save denied Billy McKay. Cheltenham dominated possession after the break and finally broke the deadlock on the hour mark. Jeff Goulding's delicate flick put Smikle in on goal and the former West Brom forward made no mistake from close range. Theo Lewis and Jeffers both missed chances to wrap up the game but the home side clung on nervously in the dying minutes as Andy Holt and Leon McKenzie squandered opportunities to level.
