Match Preview

Reid not right Morecambe boss Jim Bentley will be without wideman Izak Reid for the visit of Northampton. Reid is facing a month on the sidelines after suffering a hernia injury last weekend. Forward Kevin Ellison made a goalscoring return from his troublesome back injury by netting the winner in Monday's 1-0 triumph at Crewe - Morecambe's first victory in nine attempts - and suffered no ill reaction. The Gresty Road success came on the back of a 2-2 draw with Burton on New Year's Eve and left boss Jim Bentley satisfied with his side's progress during a hectic period. "It was a busy weekend and to take four points from two games is good but we have to build on that now," he told the Morecambe Visitor. "I have been really pleased with the two displays over the weekend. "We used the full squad and got the results I think our performances deserved. We have had a bad spell and I have been a nightmare to live with but despite the results most of the performances have been good." Northampton have no new injury or suspension problems. Kelvin Langmead, who had been on loan at Sixfields since August, signed an 18-month permanent deal with the Cobblers on Thursday after his contract with Peterborough was terminated by mutual consent. Saido Berahino will continue in attack after his loan deal from West Brom was extended until February 4 this week. Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd has options should he wish to make changes from the side that drew 1-1 at Shrewsbury, with defender Ashley Corker, midfielder Andy Holt and forwards Jake Robinson and Adebayo Akinfenwa among those players vying for recalls. Ahead of the game Boothroyd said: "It was a terrific point at Shrewsbury. I think they are a very good team and they are in a position that we would like to be in eventually. "We need to build on that because Morecambe will be another difficult game, they are a well-organised and strong, physical side. We are scoring goals but we need to keep clean sheets and that has got to be our priority at the moment."

Match Report

Boothroyd breaks Cobblers duck Aidy Boothroyd picked up his first win as Northampton boss with a battling 2-1 victory over Morecambe in npower League Two. Cobblers' midfielder John Johnson broke the deadlock on 22 minutes when he beat his man to head a Michael Jacobs corner past Barry Roche from close range, despite the Morecambe goalkeeper claiming he had been impeded. On-loan striker Akwasi Asante then doubled the advantage in the 52nd minute with a long-range strike that beat Roche low to his right. The Shrimps then piled on the pressure with Kevin Ellison pulling a goal back nine minutes before the end, converting a fine Laurence Wilson cross. The home side then peppered the Northampton goal, with Danny Carlton missing two fine chances and Gary McDonald and Lewis Alessandra both going close, but the visitors clung on for a first win since October.
