Match Preview

McIlory to ring the changes Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy looks certain to wield the axe when his side end their campaign at home to Northampton. McIlroy was left furious after his side crashed to a 7-2 thumping at Port Vale last weekend. He hauled off midfielders Kevan Hurst and Garry Hunter as well as striker Danny Carlton in the second half at Vale Park. Those three and several other players are facing an anxious wait over their inclusion. Andy Parrish and Andy Fleming are set to miss out again through injury while Paul Scott (knee) and Kieran Charnock (Achilles) remain long-term absentees. McIlroy is expecting a response to last week`s capitulation but he admitted: "It was a few days ago now yet I still can't believe how bad we were." Northampton manager Gary Johnson is set to name an unchanged squad. Johnson finally collected his first win in charge against Stevenage last weekend, which secured the club`s Football League status, and he is unlikely to make many changes. Michael Uwezu scored his first professional goal last week and will again partner Shaun Harrad in attack as a whole host of Cobblers players look set for their final appearance in the claret shirt. Johnson is poised for a radical overhaul of the squad this summer and will again be without a number of injured players. On-loan Doncaster defender Byron Webster picked up a hamstring injury against Rotherham on Good Friday while striker Leon McKenzie will also miss out with a thigh injury. Fellow forward Billy McKay is now fit after a dislocated elbow but Guillem Bauza has a rib injury and goalkeeper Steve Collis has a thigh strain.

Match Report

Happy end for Cobblers Northampton ended the season on a high as Gary Johnson claimed only his second three-point haul at the helm courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Morecambe. Kevin Thornton's first-half strike separated the sides at the break, with the midfielder scoring from close range after the Shrimps had failed to clear Michael Jacobs' cross. The Cobblers could have won the game by a greater margin if they had taken their chances. Guillem Bauza missed two open goals and Shaun Harrad wasted two excellent openings in the second half. Morecambe rarely tested Chris Dunn but Scott Brown spurned a golden chance on 64 minutes when he missed the target from six yards after Phil Jevons teed him up perfectly. Northampton made it 2-0 six minutes from time when Ben Tozer beat Barry Roche with a superb right-foot drive from 20 yards that flew into the top-right corner. Morecambe set up a grandstand finish, though, with Nile Cowperthwaite heading home after 90 minutes.
