Ryan Cresswell serves a one-game suspension this weekend

Zander Diamond will replace the suspended Ryan Cresswell at the heart of the Cobblers back four for the visit of Morecambe to Sixfields on Saturday.

Cresswell serves a one-game ban for his sending-off at Accrington for a professional foul last weekend and his place in the side will be taken by Diamond, who played the final 52 minutes at the Crown Ground as a substitute.

Left-back Tom Newey is unlikely to make the bench as the club have been wary about risking his ankle injury in training this week, while midfielder Lewis Hornby could return to the matchday 18.

Morecambe are without long-term absentee Barry Roche (hip) and midfielder Stuart Drummond (knee).
