Brendan Moloney could return to the Northampton side for Saturday's clash with Blackpool.
The defender missed last weekend's victory over Gillingham with a knee problem but boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is hopeful he will be available.
Lewis McGugan has also recovered from a toe injury while Matt Crooks (knee), Leon Barnett (Achilles) and Aaron Phillips (thigh) are all making good progress.
Alex Revell is available again after completing a three-game suspension following his red card against Bristol Rovers.
Blackpool striker Kyle Vassell is set to miss out having limped off with a hamstring problem in the first half of Saturday's 3-1 loss to Wigan.
Clark Robinson will not be involved for a second successive game due to his foot injury.
But Jimmy Ryan, sidelined since pulling up with an injury during the warm-up ahead of the win over Bury last week, could return.
Jim McAlister is still not ready for a return to action as he continues to recover from a broken leg, and Mark Cullen (hamstring) also remains unavailable.
