Match Preview

Quinn may make Rovers debut Forest Green have delved into the loan market ahead of their FA Cup clash with Northampton. Crawley defender Adam Quinn has joined the club on a month's loan and has been given permission to play in the competition. He will compete with Luke Jones and Gavin Caines for a place in the heart of the Rovers defence. Midfielder Lee Fowler remains sidelined with a knee injury, while striker Steve Davies has had his loan deal at Gloucester City extended and will not feature. Goalkeeper James Bittner returned to the starting XI against York last weekend and is likely to retain his place despite his deputy Zak Jones playing in the previous round of the competition. Northampton will be without striker Leon McKenzie for the tie. McKenzie had scored five goals in three appearances before Tuesday night`s win at Lincoln but came off after injuring his thigh in the 50th minute at Sincil Bank. Manager Ian Sampson said: "Leon is ruled out for Saturday. "The top of his thigh is still a bit sore but we don't think it's too bad and we are hoping that if we ease him through next week he will be available for the Port Vale game." Defender Marcus Hall missed the Lincoln trip with a slight groin strain but could travel while playmaker Kevin Thornton should also be back after injuring his ankle falling down some stairs last weekend. On-loan Newcastle defender Ben Tozer is allowed to play in the competition so could keep his place while forwards Courtney Herbert (foot) and Tadhg Purcell (knee) remain sidelined.

Match Report

Cobblers cruise through Ruthless Northampton ensured there was no FA Cup fairytale for Forest Green this season as they cruised to a 3-0 win. Rovers, who have reached the third round in the last two campaigns, were beaten by John Johnson's spectacular strike and further goals from Steve Guinan and Michael Jacobs. The non-league underdogs hardly helped their cause with some catastrophic errors, including a fourth penalty miss of the season from Reece Styche late on. The opening goal stemmed from a Nathaniel Wedderburn free-kick from the left which only half-cleared dropped for Johnson to smash the sweetest of volleys into the top corner from 25 yards. It was 2-0 10 minutes later, Guinan benefiting from a slip by Adam Quinn to latch onto Billy McKay's through-ball and finish coolly by rounding James Bittner. Rovers had a glimmer of hope in the 73rd minute when Styche was tripped by Ben Tozer inside the area. The top scorer took the spot-kick himself but Cobblers keeper Chris Dunn guessed correctly by diving left to save. And it was all over two minutes later when Craig Armstrong presented the ball to substitute Jacobs, who duly netted within seconds of coming on.
