Football - Akinfenwa blow for Cobblers

Northampton will be without leading scorer Adebayo Akinfenwa when they host Aldershot at Sixfields.

Akinfenwa received his fifth yellow card of the season during the 1-1 draw at Torquay last weekend and the 14-goal striker will serve a one-match suspension against the Shots.

Midfielder Ishmel Demontagnac comes back into the reckoning after serving a one-game ban of his own - also for five bookings - at Torquay.

Joe Widdowson is set to return to the squad after a dead leg ruled him out last weekend. The defender travelled to Devon but had to pull out of training the day before the game because of a complication with his injury.

Luke Guttridge is increasing his training after 11 weeks out with a foot injury but the midfielder is not yet ready for first-team action.
