Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Northampton and Wycombe at Sixfields Stadium.

Northampton have no new injury or suspension concerns as they host Wycombe looking to climb out of the League Two relegation zone in time for Christmas.

Izale McLeod, Stuart Dallas and Clive Platt all returned to Aidy Boothroyd's starting XI for last weekend's 1-1 draw at Bury, while fit-again striker Roy O'Donovan stepped off the bench in the second half.

Midfielder Darren Carter missed out due to illness but returns to the fold and will hope to make the bench at Sixfields for a Cobblers side currently 23rd in the table.

Long-term absentees Kelvin Langmead (knee), Lewis Hornby (back) and Alex Nicholls (broken leg) remain sidelined.

Wycombe will be without striker Steven Craig when they travel to struggling Northampton.

The Scot has been ruled out for six weeks after pulling his thigh in their 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe and he has been joined in the treatment room by Paris Cowan-Hall, who is undergoing further assessment to determine the extent of the knee injury he picked up in that match.

But having missed out with a back complaint, defender Gary Doherty is hopeful of a return to training ahead of Saturday's clash.

Charles Dunne (fractured tibia) and Jon-Paul Pittman (knee) are continuing their recoveries.
