Match Preview

Same again for Cobblers Northampton manager Aidy Boothroyd is expected to name an unchanged side for the third successive game when Southend visit Sixfields. In fact, Boothroyd will probably select the same starting XI and seven substitutes that formed his matchday squad for both the draw at Rochdale on the opening day of the npower League Two season and the home win over Rotherham on Tuesday night. That will mean that last season's top goalscorer Adebayo Akinfenwa will once again have to settle for a place among the substitutes. Southend, play-off semi-finalists and 5-2 winners of this fixture last season, have begun the current campaign with defeats in all three league and cup matches and have yet to score a goal this season. Michael Timlin misses out as Southend travel still searching for their first point and first goal of the season. Midfielder Timlin was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence in the first half of Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at Oxford and now serves a one-match suspension. Manager Paul Sturrock made four changes in midweek, dropping influential winger Ryan Hall, captain Chris Barker, left-back Luke Prosser and forward Britt Assombalonga to the bench. And the Scot now faces a dilemma as he looks to arrest the club's worst start to a season in 20 years. Winger Kevan Hurst is struggling with an ankle injury, striker Freddy Eastwood (calf) has resumed training but is not yet ready while fellow frontman Barry Corr (groin) remains sidelined. Goalkeeper Paul Smith is yet to make his debut having been named on the bench at Oxford following his arrival.
