Harding doubt for Cobblers
Ben Harding remains an injury doubt for Northampton ahead of their trip to promotion-chasing Crawley.
Harding missed the home defeat to Bradford on Saturday and Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd believes the away game at Hereford at the weekend is a more likely target for the midfielder's return.
"Ben has got a little bit of Achilles tendon trouble," said Boothroyd. "It's nothing too serious but with the grounds getting a little bit harder now and with the amount of games he's played in a short space of time the last thing I want to do is give him a problem.
"He will be doubtful for Crawley - we're going to give him a fitness test but we are more looking for Saturday's game."
Boothroyd added: "We came through Saturday's game okay, we picked up the usual bumps and bruises but nothing that is too serious."
Defender Byron Webster and attackers Lewis Young, Jake Robinson and Lewis Wilson are among the options for Boothroyd should he wish to make changes.
