Match Preview

Johnson waits on Cobblers` knocks Northampton boss Gary Johnson will delay naming his side for the visit of Cheltenham. Town are nursing a few knocks following the midweek defeat to Bristol Rovers, with midfielder Paul Turnbull amongst those players who are doubts. However, Adebayo Akinfenwa and Lewis Young might have played their way into Johnson's plans following their displays from the bench at the Memorial Stadium. "We have got a few knocks but we have got enough in the squad to recover from the defeat at Bristol Rovers," said Johnson. "Bayo and Lewis Young have given themselves a chance of starting on Saturday but we need to see how the knocks recover. Paul Turnbull took a kick on the knee cap inside the first five minutes. He tried to run it off but he had to come off in the end. However, it is not too serious and hopefully he should be okay." Johnson hinted at changes to the side following the defeat on Tuesday night, adding: "A few more of the lads were disappointed after Tuesday and we need to make sure we have a group of winners out on the pitch on Saturday." Cheltenham manager Mark Yates has no fresh injury concerns for the game and is likely to name an unchanged side from the one that was beaten 2-1 at home to Morecambe in midweek. Andy Gallinagh will again miss out because of injury. The 26-year-old defender is making good progress following his calf injury but is still thought to be roughly a week away from competitive action. Striker Jimmy Spencer will also be absent once more. The 19-year-old, who is on loan at the Abbey Business Stadium from Huddersfield, is serving the second game of his three-match suspension after he was red carded in last Saturday's derby victory against Swindon for elbowing Aden Flint.

Match Report

Low sends Robins sky-high Josh Low returned to haunt his former club as he grabbed a late winner for Cheltenham in a 3-2 victory over Northampton. Daryl Duffy won an 11th-minute penalty when he was fouled by Kelvin Langmead, sending Sam Walker the wrong way from the resulting spot-kick to put the Robins ahead. Cheltenham were well on top and Jeff Goulding missed a great chance to double their advantage, heading wide from Kaid Mohamed's cross. Cobblers got back into the game in the 38th minute when Adebayo Akinfenwa headed down a cross from Michael Jacobs for Aaron Davies to convert from close range. Akinfenwa headed Northampton in front 10 minutes after the restart from a pinpoint cross from the impressive Lewis Young. But Duffy equalised in the 68th minute, Low coming off the bench to pick out the striker with an excellent cross. And Low won it for Cheltenham in the 79th minute, a quick break and cross down the left by substitute Brian Smikle saw Duffy lay the ball off for Low to apply a cool finish.
