Keeper all set for Cobblers
Northampton Town, Latest news update:
Matt Duke is expected to go straight into the Northampton team to face Macclesfield.
Duke has been brought in on loan from Bradford for the remainder of the season following injuries to Shane Higgs and more recently Chris Weale.
Weale, signed on loan from Leicester in January following Higgs' injury, requires surgery after suffering a knee injury against AFC Wimbledon last week.
Toni Brito Silva is pushing for a starting role after making his debut as a second-half substitute against the Dons just hours after his arrival on loan from Liverpool.
"He is one of those players who is like a snake, you are not getting the ball off him and if you do it is generally because you have fouled him," said Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd.
"I know what he is all about and what he has got in his locker; he can go both ways, he can go off his left and shoot or go onto his right and do something as well. He will win free-kicks and fouls and he will certainly get a lot of goals for us as well."
