Match Preview

Same again for Cobblers Northampton manager Ian Sampson will name an unchanged squad as the Cobblers look to continue a fine week with a win over Chesterfield at Sixfields. The Carling Cup heroes built on their famous win at Anfield with a home win over Bradford in League Two on Saturday and Sampson is expected to keep faith with the same XI. Centre-half Dean Beckwith remains sidelined with a thigh injury so on-loan Newcastle defender Ben Tozer will keep his place and look to continue his 100% record in the Cobblers shirt after scoring at the weekend. Leon McKenzie is fit again after missing the Liverpool win and could come in if Sampson decides to rest in-form Billy McKay. The Cobblers will continue to be without skipper Craig Hinton and Tadgh Purcell who both have knee injuries while Marcus Hall is also out with a knee injury. Chesterfield manager John Sheridan is likely to make changes. Sheridan has named an unchanged side for the last two games - a home victory over Cheltenham and Saturday`s defeat at rivals Rotherham. Defenders Ian Breckin and Rob Page both featured in a practice match last week and made the bench at the Don Valley Stadium. Midfielders Derek Niven and Dan Gray and striker Scott Boden are also among those players available to Sheridan. However, teenage striker Jordan Bowery remains a slight doubt with the hip problem that ruled him out at the weekend.

Match Report

Davies snatches win for Spireites Craig Davies earned Chesterfield their first win on the road as his second-half strike snatched a 2-1 victory at Northampton. The Spireites had to come from behind to take all three points after being outplayed and falling behind at Sixfields. The impressive Kevin Thornton was at the heart of all Northampton's best moves in the first half. Thornton went close on three occasions, while striker Billy McKay was foiled by goalkeeper Tommy Lee and then headed against the upright as Northampton looked for the breakthrough. It came in first-half stoppage-time when Lee failed to hold on to a Michael Jacobs drive and Thornton pounced to head home his fourth goal of the campaign. Thornton twice went close in the second half, but substitute Jack Lester should have equalised shortly after coming on. The equaliser arrived in the 71st minute when Northampton fell asleep at a corner and Dean Morgan made them pay with a 12-yard shot. Davies grabbed the winner four minutes later when Chesterfield caught Northampton on a quick break and he finished coolly, beating Chris Dunn from the edge of the box.
