Match Preview

Duo doubtful for Cobblers Northampton manager Gary Johnson is waiting on the fitness of Michael Jacobs and defender John Johnson ahead of Saturday's home clash against Bury. Winger Jacobs missed the 1-1 draw at Burton in midweek through illness while Johnson missed out with a thigh strain. Johnson said: "Michael and John should both be close for Saturday. "No disrespect to the rest of the squad but at the moment they are probably our two most consistent performers and to have them back in the team would give us a massive lift for Saturday." Johnson's absence led to a reshuffle in the back four at Burton, with Dean Beckwith filling in at right-back and Marcus Hall moving to centre-half. Captain Andy Holt remains a doubt with his knee problem while midfielder Ryan Gilligan has had surgery on a long-standing ankle problem and is sidelined for the rest of the season. Striker Billy McKay is out for another month after dislocating his elbow but Leon McKenzie is back in the squad after a knee injury. Bury caretaker boss Richie Barker could be without a trio of players. Midfielder Steven Schumacher serves the second game of two-match ban and will miss out again. Striker Andy Bishop is on the treatment table after going through another knee operation and will remain sidelined. Midfielder Peter Sweeney will also be assessed ahead of the Sixfields showdown as he bids to shake off a hamstring injury. Meanwhile, Robbie Fowler is to spend a week coaching at Gigg Lane assisting Barker. The former Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester City striker, who enjoyed a similar short spell coaching MK Dons earlier in the campaign, is set to join Barker in the dugout for Tuesday's home game with Burton.

Match Report

Shakers hammer helpless Cobblers Nicky Ajose grabbed a brace as Bury maintained their promotion push with a 4-2 win at Northampton - who are facing a fight to stay up. The match began badly for the Cobblers with goalkeeper Chris Dunn injured early on and matters got worse as Bury raced into a 4-0 lead before the hosts made the scoreline respectable. Dunn had to be replaced after only eight minutes after being injured in a collision with Damien Mozika and replacement Steve Collis was soon picking the ball out of the net twice in quick succession. Ryan Lowe pounced on a rebound to break the deadlock in the 24th minute and four minutes later Ajose raced onto a long clearance and beat Collis to double Bury's advantage. Bury grabbed a three goal three minutes before the break to all but end the contest. Peter Sweeney's corner was only partially cleared, Mozika saw his first effort blocked but his second was deflected past Collis. Ajose grabbed his second goal in the 57th minute when David Worrall sent the on-loan Manchester United striker clear and he comfortably beat Collis. Two minutes later Shaun Harrad pulled a goal back when he beat the offside trap to race clear and shoot past Cameron Belford. Harrad grabbed his second goal in stoppage time when he took advantage of a static defence to lob Belford but it came much too late to alter the outcome.
