Match Preview

Cobblers keeper keen to comeback Northampton goalkeeper Chris Dunn has declared himself fit for Saturday's crunch clash with Stevenage. Dunn has missed the last three games with a facial injury but will come back after replacement Steve Collis hurt his thigh during the 2-2 draw at Stockport on Monday. Manager Gary Johnson said: "Chris is available for selection. He wants to play and he has more than proved to me that he is both physically and mentally ready for the game. "He will probably have to wear some sort of protective mask or helmet but the injury is well healed and he's ready to play." On-loan Doncaster defender Byron Webster picked up a hamstring injury against Rotherham on Good Friday and will miss the rest of the run in as the Cobblers look to stay in the Football League. Striker Leon McKenzie will also miss the rest of the season after he picked up a thigh injury at Stockport but fellow forward Billy McKay is now fit after a dislocated elbow. A first win in 19 games could be enough to secure their place in League Two if Barnet lose at Accrington. Peter Winn will miss out for Borough through suspension. The striker was banned for the crucial 1-0 win over Port Vale, which kept alive the club's hopes of reaching the play-offs in their first season in npower League Two, after being shown a straight red in the previous match. Rob Sinclair started in attack against the Valiants and looks set to continue as the Hertfordshire side seek to secure a top-seven finish. Lawrie Wilson bagged the decisive goal in that game but was later substituted, although he should be ok to line up again for Graham Westley's side. Having been crowned champions of the Blue Square Bet Premier last season, Stevenage are aiming to make it back-to-back promotions.

Match Report

Cobblers secure League status Northampton secured their League status with their first victory in 19 games with a 2-0 win over nine-man Stevenage. Goals in each half from Liam Davis and Michael Uwezu handed the Cobblers a priceless win in an ill-tempered clash, but it was a bad day all-round for promotion-chasing Stevenage, who saw Luke Foster and John Mousinho dismissed. Davis gave Northampton the perfect start, firing home in the third minute through a crowded area after a Michael Jacobs corner was only partially cleared. But Stevenage were reduced to 10 men in the 38th minute when Foster received a straight red card for a challenge on Seth Nana Ofori-Twumasi and Northampton took full advantage to control the second half. The hosts doubled their advantage in the 59th minute when Uwezu followed up to slot home the rebound from Kevin Thornton's shot. With six minutes remaining, Mousinho received his marching orders for a late challenge on Jacobs to end Stevenage's hopes of a late comeback.
