Match Preview

Cobblers trio set to return Under-pressure Northampton manager Ian Sampson will be boosted for the visit of Gillingham by the returning trio of Leon McKenzie, Dean Beckwith and John Johnson. McKenzie has scored four times in the last two league games and will return after being rested for the Carling Cup defeat at Ipswich on Tuesday night. Centre-half Beckwith will also return to the starting XI after he completed a three-match ban while right-back Johnson is also available after he missed out at Ipswich thanks to a one-game suspension. Sampson has no fresh injury concerns but is in dire need of a win after seeing his side slip to 91st place in the Football League on the back of six straight defeats. Defender Craig Hinton made his first appearance of the season in midweek following a knee injury but will drop out while striker Tadhg Purcell will miss the rest of the season with his knee injury. Gillingham have several absentees for the trip. Goalkeeper Lance Cronin, who has been number two to Alan Julian this term, has a foot injury and will not be included in the squad, meaning youth team keeper Daren Hawkes will step up to the bench. Curtis Weston came off after 30 minutes of the 1-1 draw with Torquay last week with a thigh injury and he will miss out. Mark McCammon is still struggling with an ankle injury while Josh Gowling has a virus and is rated as doubtful. Danny Jackman is back in training after an ankle problem, but the game will come too soon, while striker Adebayo Akinfenwa will be desperate to start against his former club.

Match Report

McKenzie ends Cobblers drought Leon McKenzie was spot on to end Northampton's run of five straight defeats in a 2-1 win at home to Gillingham. The visitors took the early lead through Chris Palmer but Dean Beckwith equalised against his former club, leaving McKenzie to hit the winner from the penalty spot. Palmer gave Gillingham a seventh-minute lead, rounding off a cleverly worked free kick involving himself, Kevin Maher and John Nutter. Facing a seventh straight defeat, Northampton hit back and Nathaniel Wedderburn volleyed just wide before Beckwith equalised in the 20th minute, powerfully heading home at the far post on his return from a three-match ban from Ryan Gilligan's corner. McKenzie volleyed over and Andy Holt saw his near post header tipped over by Alan Julian before Northampton grabbed what proved to be the winner in the 39th minute. Matt Lawrence fouled Beckwith from a set piece in the box and from the ensuing spot kick McKenzie sent Julian the wrong way. Chris Dunn saved bravely at Cody McDonald's feet just before the break but after the interval neither side created much. Adebayo Akinfenwa headed over and then saw a shot on the turn saved by Dunn but rarely threatened against his former club.
