Carter back for Cobblers
Darren Carter returns to contention as winless Northampton play host to Newport.
The midfielder missed Tuesday's Capital One Cup defeat to MK Dons due to a one-match suspension having been sent off during last Saturday's 1-0 loss at York.
Clive Platt (calf) and Chris Hackett (Achilles) have both returned to training and are making good progress but will not be risked.
Lewis Hornby (toe) as well as long-term absentees Kelvin Langmead (knee) and Alex Nicholls (broken leg) continue to miss out.
Newport will be without Byron Anthony after he suffered a double leg fracture in midweek.
The 28-year-old defender sustained the injury in a tackle with Indigo Calderon in the second half of the Exiles' shock 3-1 victory.
Andrew Hughes replaced Anthony on Tuesday night and the Welsh defender looks likely to step into the starting line-up in place of the former Bristol Rovers man.
Skipper David Pipe may start on the bench again having picked up a rib problem in the build-up to Tuesday's memorable win with Ryan Jackson likely to make his first league start.
Another substitute, Danny Crow, is pushing for a start having scored twice after stepping into the action against the Championship side.
