Cobblers wait on Widdowson
Northampton will again check on Joe Widdowson ahead of their home encounter against Bristol Rovers as they chase a third successive victory.
The left-back missed Tuesday's 2-1 triumph over Southend due to an ankle injury sustained last weekend in the win against Hartlepool.
Gregor Robertson is prepared to step in once more as the relegation-threatened Cobblers look to string together three straight league wins for the first time in over a year.
Skipper Lee Collins (foot) has been ruled out for the rest of the season while long-term absentees Kelvin Langmead, Alex Nicholls and Lewis Hornby remain sidelined.
Bristol Rovers will be without Alan Gow.
The Exeter loanee is set for a few weeks on the sidelines with an ankle ligament injury he sustained in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe.
Fellow forward Steven Gillespie stepped off the bench to net a late leveller against the Iron and the former Cheltenham man will hope to have done enough to earn a place in Gow's absence.
And while striker Matt Harrold will return to the squad after recovering from a minor knee problem, the Pirates will assess Tom Lockyer in the build-up to kick-off after he broke his nose on Tuesday.
