Football - Harrison makes case

Cheltenham striker Byron Harrison is pushing for a start when the Robins host fellow promotion hopefuls Northampton.

The former AFC Wimbledon striker made a big impact after being sent on at half-time of their 3-2 defeat to Port Vale on Friday and put in a display described by manager Mark Yates as his best for the club since joining.

Sam Deering was also introduced as a second-half substitute after being replaced in the starting line-up by Jason Taylor.

Keith Lowe and Darren Carter are also pushing for starts should Yates decide to freshen up his starting line-up against a side three points ahead of Yates' men.

New signing Jack Deaman, borrowed from Birmingham on Thursday, didn't make the bench at Vale Park but did make the journey to support his team mates and he could be involved in the matchday squad.
