Aaron Pierre banned for Northampton

Northampton will be without suspended defender Aaron Pierre for their clash with fellow League Two strugglers Notts County.

Pierre was sent off just before the hour mark of last weekend’s 2-0 loss to Port Vale and must serve a one-match ban.

Striker Junior Morais (hamstring) is definitely sidelined while Daniel Powell is also set to miss out with a hamstring strain and Shaun McWilliams (foot) is a doubt.

The Cobblers have only won one match so far this season and manager Dean Austin could make changes after being frustrated by their performance against Vale.

County sit bottom of the table and are still looking for their first win after being pegged back three times by Stevenage last weekend.

New signings Jamie Turley and Cedric Evina both made their debuts but right-back Turley only lasted 45 minutes after appearing to hurt his ribs.

If he is not fit, Matt Tootle is likely to come into the starting line-up having replaced Turley in his own return from injury.

Midfielder Andy Kellett could come back into contention following injury but Dan Jones serves the last game of his three-match ban while Richard Duffy (hamstring) and Ben Hall (groin) are still expected to be unavailable.
