Match Preview

Davis absent for Cobblers Northampton will again be without winger Liam Davis for the visit of Accrington Stanley on Saturday. Davis missed the midweek Carling Cup win over Brighton with an ankle injury and will sit out once more so teenager Michael Jacobs should keep his place. Jacobs started against Brighton and scored so should be handed his full league debut by manager Ian Sampson. Goalkeeper Chris Dunn is close to a return to training as he recovers from an ankle injury but on-loan Oscar Jansson will start against Stanley. Centre-half Craig Hinton remains the only other absentee with a knee problem as midfielder Kevin Thornton has recovered from the illness which forced him to miss last weekend`s disappointing 3-0 defeat at Torquay. Rory Boulding is set to hand Accrington a boost. The striker missed the midweek Carling Cup win over Championship side Doncaster after picking up an ankle knock in the opening day draw against Aldershot. However, Boulding is expected to return to contention, leaving manager John Coleman with a full squad at his disposal. Coleman will be keen to keep changes to a minimum following his side's impressive performance on Tuesday night, although one or two players may well be rested after completing 120 minutes at the Keepmoat Stadium. Winger Chris Turner will be hoping to feature from the start after coming off the bench to grab his side's first goal against Doncaster.

Match Report

Stalemate at Sixfields Northampton are still looking for their first win - and their first goals - of the new campaign after being held in a stalemate by Accrington at Sixfields. The Cobblers had the majority of the possession in a dull affair against an Accrington side boosted by their midweek Carling Cup success at Championship outfit Doncaster Rovers. Accrington proved a tough nut to crack and looked to be happy with a point as they thwarted Northampton in the final third. Northampton had the better of the chances in the 90 minutes while keeper Oscar Jansson was untroubled by the visitors at the other end. In a first half of few chances Billy McKay came closest at breaking the deadlock but his lob was well dealt with by Accrington keeper Ian Dunbavin. McKay should have given Northampton the advantage five minutes after the restart when he broke clear but, with just Dunbavin to beat, he shot straight at the keeper. And it was McKay again who came closest to ending the stalemate in the 75th minute when he was picked out by Kevin Thornton but from a good position once again shot straight at Dunbavin.
