Match Preview

Davis misses out for Cobblers Northampton caretaker manager Malcolm Crosby will be without left-back Liam Davis for the visit of Shrewsbury. Crosby takes charge for the first time since the sacking of Ian Sampson and will not have Davis available as he continues to nurse an Achilles injury. Crosby has hinted that he will not make major changes but is boosted by the return of January signing Shaun Harrad. Striker Harrad missed the 3-2 defeat at home to his former club Burton, which saw the end of Sampson's 17-year stay at Sixfields, through suspension, but he should start. Defender Craig Hinton has had an injection in a long-standing knee injury this week and he will be out for around a month. Midfielder Ryan Gilligan has returned from his loan at Torquay a week early after suffering a family bereavement but cannot play until the Macclesfield game on March 12. Shrewsbury welcome back influential skipper Ian Sharps. The centre-back was suspended for Tuesday`s 3-0 home defeat to Bury but has now served his one-match ban and is likely to replace Connor Goldson, who came in to make his full League debut. Shrews were not as bad as the convincing midweek scoreline suggests and manager Graham Turner is likely to resist from ringing the changes, although he may op to tinker with his line-up. Forwards Tom Bradshaw (ankle), Nathan Elder and Benjamin van den Broek (both knee) along with defenders Kelvin Lomax (ligament) and David Raven (hip) all got more minutes under their belts for the reserves on Wednesday. Van den Broek and Lomax both made the bench against Bury and, with each of the quintet at different stages in their respective recoveries, Turner must again decide who is ready to be involved at Sixfields. Full-back Jermaine Grandison will be assessed after he came off four minutes from time against the Shakers nursing a knock, while midfielder Sean McAllister continues to recover from his hernia operation.

Match Report

Taylor spoils Johnson`s debut Jon Taylor grabbed a late winner to spoil Gary Johnson's first game in charge of Northampton as Shrewsbury twice came from behind to maintain their promotion bid with a 3-2 victory. Johnson, who took over from Ian Sampson on Friday, saw his new side get off to the perfect start when Michael Jacobs gave them a sixth minute lead with a 20-yard screamer that flew into the net via the crossbar past a stranded Ben Smith. But Shrewsbury were back on level terms within two minutes when a cross was not dealt with and David Davies pounced to score from eight yards. Josh Walker went close with a 30-yard free-kick which Smith tipped over before Cobblers regained the lead two minutes after the restart. It was Jacobs again who grabbed his seventh goal of the season, cutting in from the left to curl a great shot into the top corner. But once again, Northampton failed to hold on to their advantage and James Collins was allowed time and space to beat Chris Dunn from the edge of the box in the 51st minute. Northampton went close with Shaun Harrad firing into the side netting, Jacobs shooting just wide and Walker also off target before Taylor popped up in the 87th minute to fire home with a half volley after a corner was only partially cleared. That saw Northampton slip to their second 3-2 defeat in five days and they have now gone eight games without a win.
