Match Preview

Davies doubt for Cobblers Arron Davies is a major doubt for Northampton as they look to make it two wins on the spin against Southend. The Welsh midfielder missed the 2-1 victory at Morecambe with a groin injury and is unlikely to be risked against the Shrimpers. Last weekend's triumph at the Globe Arena was the Cobblers' first victory under manager Aidy Boothroyd and he has been boosted by full-back Jason Crowe signing a new deal until the end of the season. Boothroyd has seen an improvement in performances in recent weeks and he is keen for that to continue, telling the club's official website: "I think the last couple of results and the last four performances, I've been pleased. "We've always been in the game, we've always done enough to give the opposition problems and we've started to concede less goals. We haven't had a clean sheet yet which is something I'm looking to do in the next few games." Shane Higgs and Nana Ofori-Twumasi will both continue to miss out with long-term Achilles and knee injuries respectively. Jack Sampson could make his debut for Southend. The striker, 18, signed a month-long loan deal from Bolton on Thursday and goes straight into contention for his Shrimpers bow at Sixfields. Fellow forward Elliot Benyon turned his ankle in last Saturday's 3-0 victory over Port Vale and missed training over the first half of this week before returning on Thursday, with the January signing to be assessed ahead of the weekend. Glenn Morris dislocated the little finger on his left hand during the second half against Vale, with the goalkeeper having it put back in place on the pitch before completing the remainder of the encounter. And despite requiring protective strapping to the area, he is expected to be okay to feature as second top meets second bottom in npower League Two.

Match Report

Late Shrimpers comeback stuns Cobblers Title-chasing Southend twice came from behind to beat relegation-threatened Northampton 5-2 at Sixfields. John Johnson gave the Cobblers a 10th-minute lead, forcing the ball home from close range after Southend failed to deal with Ben Tozer's long throw. David Martin equalised in the 41st minute, volleying home at the far post after Northampton were caught out by Sean Clohessy's cross, but Saido Berahino restored Northampton's advantage two minutes later, beating Glenn Morris from the edge of the box. Southend dominated the second half, with Hall parrying Liam Dickinson's drive and then saving Elliot Benyon's rebound, but the pressure finally told in the 70th minute when Hall impeded Dickinson in the box and the striker picked himself up to fire home the ensuing spot-kick. Michael Jacobs almost restored Northampton's advantage moments later when Morris turned his 25-yard free-kick around the post, while Harding went even closer in the 74th minute when his set-piece from a similar distance hit the inside of an upright before Berahino headed just past the wrong side of a post. Substitute Bilel Mohsni put Southend in front for the first time in the 82nd minute, heading home Hall's perfect cross. Three minutes later Dickinson grabbed his second with a clinical close-range finish and Mohsni headed home his second in stoppage time from Hall's inswinging corner.
