Football - Carter blow for Cobblers

Darren Carter is suspended for Northampton's Capital One Cup tie at home to MK Dons.

PA Sport Report

The debutant midfielder, a summer signing from Cheltenham, was given his marching orders during Saturday's 1-0 defeat at York having received two bookings and will now serve a one-match ban.

Manager Aidy Boothroyd's problems do not stop there, though, with influential duo Clive Platt (calf) and Chris Hackett (hamstring) still unavailable despite closing in on their respective returns to training.

The Cobblers are also without Lewis Hornby (back) as well as long-term absentees Kelvin Langmead (knee) and Alex Nicholls (broken leg).
