Gilligan pushing for Cobblers start
Published : 16 Oct 2009 14:00:22
Midfielder Gilligan, who has bagged five goals this season, returns to the squad after serving his one-match suspension for collecting five bookings. Cobblers winger Liam Davis remains in the treatment room with a broken metatarsal. The former Coventry wideman has endured an injury-ravaged 18 months, but is two weeks away from making a comeback. Adebayo Akinfenwa is set to start after scoring off the bench at Bury last Saturday. The former Swansea forward may step in for experienced front-man Steve Guinan. Sampson will take charge of his first home game since officially being named Northampton boss, as his charges aim to stretch the club's unbeaten league run to five matches.
