Northampton Town are reporting that they are likely to not risk attacking midfielder Luke Guttridge for their trip to Huish Park tomorrow night. Guttridge was Northampton's goalscorer in their Saturday 1-1 draw against Carlisle United but damaged medial knee ligaments in the game. He was withdrawn as a precaution, but it would appear that Tuesday night's match will come too soon for him to feature.
On loan Fulham defender Adam Watts will definitely miss out due to concussion, whilst the Cobblers may play tomorrow night's match without a substitute keeper, with Paul Walker picking up a thumb injury in training last week. Despite Glovers keeper Josh Wagenaar being available for Saturday's match, the Glovers chose to do the same, and so the match could easily see both benches operating without sub keepers. Chris Dunn will be between the sticks for Northampton, whilst Yeovil will undoubtedly keep Bristol City loanee Chris Weale where he has been for the last two fixtures.
Northampton do have a problem with defender Jason Crowe, with the former Arsenal trainee suffering from a groin strain. However, he played through Saturday's match with the same problem and survived the 90 minutes.
Northampton will have two familiar faces in their squad for tomorrow night's match. Striker Aleksandar Prijovic spent a month on loan at Huish Park earlier this year and has since moved to Sixfields for his second spell away from Derby County.
Meanwhile Adebayo Akinfenwa needs little introduction, with the former Swansea City and Torquay United powerhouse having spent a couple of months training with the Glovers during the early part of the 2007-08 season and turning out for the Reserves before signing a permanent deal with Millwall. Since heading to Sixfields, he has scored at a rate of over a goal every two games, with 20 strikes in 37 starts, including one of the goals in Northampton's 3-0 win over Yeovil in October 2008.
Tomorrow night's match kicks off at 7.45p.m. and tickets will be available on the day of the game subject to the usual matchday tariffs. If you want to take advantage of the pre-match prices, you'll need to phone or visit the Huish Park Ticket Office by 5.00p.m. tonight.
