Match Preview

No new worries for Johnson Northampton boss Gary Johnson has no fresh injury worries for the visit of joint-league leaders Crawley. But he will again be without Nick McKoy, with the midfielder serving the final match of a four-game suspension following his sending off against AFC Wimbledon last month. The Cobblers have also been boosted by the return of striker Bas Savage who has recovered from the foot injury that has kept him out since the middle of September. The summer signing has trained all week and is in contention for a place on the substitutes' bench. Strikers Lewis Young and Adebayo Akinfenwa shook off knocks to play in Saturday's 2-1 win at Barnet and will again be named in the starting line-up having suffered no reaction. Kyle McFadzean and Tyrone Barnett are major doubts for Crawley. Defender McFadzean sustained a groin injury at the end of last weekend's win over Plymouth and striker Barnett was forced off with a recurrence of a hamstring problem. Boss Steve Evans admits he is "not very hopeful" of having either player available at Sixfields. But midfield duo Josh Simpson (hip) and Scott Neilson (shoulder) could return after recovering from knocks and club captain Pablo Mills is set to travel with the squad after six months on the sidelines. The defender made his comeback from ankle surgery with a 45-minute run-out for the reserves in midweek and could be on the bench.

Match Report

Tubbs in seventh heaven Matt Tubbs netted his seventh goal of the season as high-flying Crawley made it four wins on the bounce with a 1-0 victory at Northampton. The Red Devils picked up all three points thanks to Tubbs' first-half winner and, despite having plenty of possession, the Cobblers didn't create enough in the final third to get something from the game. Northampton started brightly as Jacobs twice tested goalkeeper Scott Shearer, but it was the visitors who broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute. Andy Drury's free-kick wasn't dealt with by the home defence and when the ball ran free, Tubbs pounced to beat Sam Walker with a deflected shot from 10 yards. Tyrone Barnett almost doubled the visitors' advantage five minutes before the break, shooting on the turn only to be denied by Walker after Sergio Torres flicked on a cross from David Hunt. Lewis Young shot tamely at Shearer in the second half but Jacobs went closest when his curling effort came back off the bar in the 73rd minute with Shearer well beaten. In between, substitute John Akinde shot over after creating a good opening and, late on, Tubbs almost grabbed his second, his dipping shot going just over. Northampton almost grabbed a point in stoppage time when Kelvin Langmead headed wide at the far post from a Jacobs set-piece.
