Cobblers strong for Dons test
Northampton manager Aidy Boothroyd has a full-strength squad at his disposal for the visit of AFC Wimbledon.
Boothroyd rested a handful of first-team regulars for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy first-round win over MK Dons - a game that also saw several fringe players enhance their claims for starting places. Jake Robinson scored the only goal of the game in midweek, while there were also encouraging performances from Louis Moult, Ishmel Demontagnac and Henoc Mukendi on their full debuts. Defender David Artell, midfielders Ben Harding, Luke Guttridge and Chris Hackett and striker Alex Nicholls were the players rested against MK Dons and they are likely to come back into the team. Northampton did the double over AFC Wimbledon last season, winning the the first-ever meeting between the two clubs 3-0 before triumphing 1-0 in the return fixture at Sixfields.
