Match Preview

Johnson returns for Town Northampton will have defender John Johnson back for the visit of Wycombe. The former Middlesbrough full-back missed the 1-1 draw at Bury last weekend and the fine Carling Cup win over Reading in midweek with a groin injury but is fit and could start at right-back. Midfielder Ruan Gilligan sat out the Madejski win with an ankle injury and will be assessed while boss Ian Sampson could make changes after a gruelling 120 minutes in Berkshire. Kevin Thornton starred in a role behind lone striker Tadhg Purcell as Sampson changed his system but Steve Guinan could be recalled if the manager chooses to revert to 4-4-2. Goalkeeper Chris Dunn is back in light training but will not return from his ankle injury so on-loan Spurs keeper Oscar Jansson will keep his place. Winger Liam Davis remains out with his ankle injury but should be back within 10 days although defender Craig Hinton is on the sidelines after a setback in his recovery from a knee problem. Wycombe will be without centre-half Alan Bennett for the trip. Bennett lasted just seven minutes of last weekend`s 0-0 draw at home to Oxford before limping off with a hamstring injury so Leon Johnson is likely to start at Sixfields alongside Dave Winfield. Striker Stuart Beavon - whose father and namesake Stuart played for the Cobblers in the 1990s - is in contention for a starting spot after recovering from a broken leg and scoring in a 3-1 reserve friendly win over Bournemouth on Tuesday. Veteran midfielder Gareth Ainsworth will be hoping to return to the starting XI after he was only a substitute against Oxford, where he came on to make his 500th career appearance.

Match Report

Thornton's sweet moment Kevin Thornton grabbed a late spot-kick equaliser to earn Northampton a point with a 1-1 draw against unbeaten Wycombe, who looked to be heading for all three for so long. Wycombe had led through an Andy Sandell's first-half opener but Thornton popped up to equalise from the penalty spot. Thornton went close in the first half and Billy McKay forced Nicky Bull into a smart save as Northampton sought their first win of the campaign. But Sandell, who had earlier scraped the post with a free-kick, gave Wycombe a 39th-minute lead with a superb free-kick from the edge of the area. After the break Scott Rendell and Ben Strevens should have doubled Wycombe's advantage but both missed the target from close range. Northampton then produced a late surge. Thornton had a shot blocked, as did Abdul Osman, before Andy Holt was tripped in the box by Gareth Ainsworth in the 87th minute and Thornton scored from the ensuing penalty.
