Northampton manager Ian Sampson will name an unchanged squad as the Cobblers look to continue a fine week with a win over Chesterfield at Sixfields.

The Carling Cup heroes built on their famous win at Anfield with a home win over Bradford in League Two on Saturday and Sampson is expected to keep faith with the same XI.

Centre-half Dean Beckwith remains sidelined with a thigh injury so on-loan Newcastle defender Ben Tozer will keep his place and look to continue his 100% record in the Cobblers shirt after scoring at the weekend.

Leon McKenzie is fit again after missing the Liverpool win and could come in if Sampson decides to rest in-form Billy McKay.

The Cobblers will continue to be without skipper Craig Hinton and Tadgh Purcell who both have knee injuries while Marcus Hall is also out with a knee injury.

Chesterfield manager John Sheridan is likely to make changes.

Sheridan has named an unchanged side for the last two games - a home victory over Cheltenham and Saturday`s defeat at rivals Rotherham.

Defenders Ian Breckin and Rob Page both featured in a practice match last week and made the bench at the Don Valley Stadium. Midfielders Derek Niven and Dan Gray and striker Scott Boden are also among those players available to Sheridan.

However, teenage striker Jordan Bowery remains a slight doubt with the hip problem that ruled him out at the weekend.
