Match Preview

Northampton will be without Dean Beckwith when they host rock-bottom Hereford. The defender saw red in last week's defeat at Cheltenham for stamping on Shaun Jeffers and now begins a three-match ban, having only just returned from a five-match lay-off following a calf injury. Boss Ian Sampson is likely to respond by changing formation which will see Ben Tozer and Andrew Holt partnered in defence. Sampson has no fresh injuries to contend with as he tries to arrest a worrying slump in form, with the Cobblers having lost their last three League Two games. Striker Leon McKenzie is hopeful of a start after appearing from the bench in recent weeks while Craig Hinton and Tadhg Purcell (both knee) are continued absentees. Hereford are boosted by the long-awaited return of captain Janos Kovacs. The centre-back has proved a big loss at the heart of defence having been sidelined for the past six weeks following knee surgery, but the Hungarian returns to the fold at Sixfields and is almost certain to start. Striker Stuart Fleetwood is also in contention having not fully recovered from a back injury in time for last Saturday`s impressive 1-1 draw at home to high-flying Port Vale. But fellow forward Sean Canham misses out against the Cobblers as he serves a one-match suspension following his dismissal at Edgar Street last weekend. He is joined in the stands by long-term absentee Dan Connor (hip) as caretaker manager Jamie Pitman looks to build on last weekend`s point and possibly put himself further in the frame for the position on a full-time basis.

Match Report

Cobblers stunned by Bulls fightback Substitute Mathieu Manset grabbed the late winner as Hereford completed a remarkable second-half comeback to win 4-3 at Northampton. The basement club looked to be heading for another defeat after trailing 3-0 at the break but they hit back with four second-half goals to send Northampton plunging to their fourth defeat on the trot. Leon McKenzie had completed a first-half hat-trick for Northampton to put them in control of the battle between the two strugglers. McKenzie opened his account in the 24th minute, beating goalkeeper Adam Bartlett to a Liam Davis cross. McKenzie doubled Northampton's advantage in the 42nd minute, knocking home the rebound after Bartlett could only parry Kevin Thornton's shot, and he completed his hat-trick in first-half stoppage time by racing on to a backpass from James McQuilkin and rounding the stranded Bartlett. Substitute Stuart Fleetwood reduced the arrears in the 59th minute after being set up by Guillem Bauza and the same two players combined in the 70th minute for Fleetwood to grab his second with a header. Two minutes later McQuilkin curled an 18-yard effort into the top corner, leaving Manset to grab a 78th-minute winner following a scramble in the box. To end a miserable day for Northampton, defender Ben Tozer was sent off three minutes from the end for throwing the ball at a Hereford player.
