Clean bill of health for Northampton manager Rob Page

Northampton manager Rob Page has no fresh injury or suspension worries as his side face Bristol Rovers in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.

Jak McCourt is back in contention after missing the 3-1 win over Swindon in midweek which saw them move up to fourth in the league.

The 21-year-old midfielder picked up a knock in the 4-0 win against Southend but has overcome the injury to be available for Saturday.

The Cobblers have only lost one game so far in the league this season.

Stuart Sinclair will return to the Rovers midfield after sitting out the midweek defeat at Sheffield United.

Sinclair was banned at Bramall Lane after picking up five bookings in 11 games.

Jermaine Easter starts a three-match ban following his midweek dismissal in south Yorkshire, but top scorer Matty Taylor could return after a hamstring problem.

Young Chelsea defender Jake Clarke-Salter is expected to feature after making his Rovers debut in midweek after having only one training session at the club, but boss Darrell Clarke could rotate in one or two areas for the Pirates' seventh game in 21 days.
