Terry Gornell is expected to continue in attack for Accrington as they look to continue their play-off push against Northampton.

The striker was initially a doubt for the Hereford match but scored twice in a 4-0 victory which moved Stanley to within three points of the top seven.

With John Coleman likely to stick with the same side that cruised to victory against the Bulls, Rory Boulding will have to be content with a place on the bench.

He scored in a 1-1 draw at Aldershot when Gornell was out injured after he had stitches in a knee wound, but failed to retain his place in the side.

Coleman's side have not lost in five matches and are unbeaten at home since January 18.

However, they were held to a goalless draw at Sixfields on their first away trip of the season.

Northampton midfielder Ryan Gilligan will miss the trip to the Crown Ground.

Gilligan has had surgery on an long-standing ankle problem and is sidelined for the rest of the season as manager Gary Johnson searches for his first win in charge.

Defender Dean Beckwith was back on the bench for last Friday`s 2-2 draw with Torquay after a groin injury and will be involved again, while captain Andy Holt remains on the sidelines with a muscle problem.

Striker Billy McKay is out for another month after dislocating his elbow while fellow forward Leon McKenzie (knee) is back in training and could travel with the squad.

Guillem Bauza will continue alongside Shaun Harrad in attack after he scored his first goal for the club to claim a point against Torquay, while new signing Michael Uwezu may be on the bench for the first time.
