Football - Nicky back in the Hunt for Stanley

In-form Accrington will welcome back veteran full-back Nicky Hunt as they look to extend their eight-match unbeaten run at Northampton.

PA Sport Report

Stanley did not miss the former Bolton defender too much in midweek as he served a one-game ban while James Beattie's men impressively beat high-flying Fleetwood 2-0 at the Crown Ground.

Fellow full-back Lee Naylor could also be back in the fray with Accrington keeping their fingers crossed that the bone bruising on his foot subsides in time for kick-off.

Rob Atkinson is still expected to miss out with a hamstring injury, although he is back in light training, while goalkeeper Andrew Dawber will miss the next three-to-four weeks after undergoing groin surgery.
