Tom Newey and Billy Bodin will be added to the Cobblers’ matchday squad for the trip to Accrington on Saturday but the starting 11 is expected to remain the same for the fifth successive match.

Left-back Newey and striker Bodin, who is not ready to start games after spending the past eight months out after knee surgery, should be on the bench at the Crown Ground.

No fresh injuries have been reported within the squad and manager Chris Wilder will not deviate from the side which has won its past three matches, keeping clean sheets in all three.

That means experienced defender Zander Diamond and 18-year-old striker Ivan Toney remain on the bench.

Accrington have no injury concerns but could make a squad change with centre-back Tom Aldred closing in on a transfer to Oldham Athletic.
