Cobblers winger Mickel Miller may not play again this season after suffering a recurrence of his hamstring injury.

The 25-year-old, who joined on loan from Rotherham United in January, limped off 36 minutes into his debut against Lincoln City and subsequently missed the next four weeks.

He worked his way back to fitness and became a regular in the side under Jon Brady, making his seventh successive start for the Cobblers when Crewe Alexandra visited the PTS Academy Stadium on Saturday.

But Miller sustained a similar injury to his previous one when competing for a high ball in the closing stages of Town's defeat to the Alex, having to limp off in place of Ryan Edmondson after 72 minutes.

Initially, the injury was not thought to be too serious but following further investigation on Monday it was confirmed after Tuesday's victory over Oxford United that he will likely miss around six weeks.

Manager Jon Brady admitted he was 'gutted' when revealing the severity of Miller's injury. If that timeframe proves accurate, it would keep him out for all-but one game - Town's final-day trip to Sunderland.
