Northampton set to be without veteran striker Williams

Northampton are expected to be without veteran striker Andy Williams for the Sky Bet League Two match against promotion-chasing Exeter.

The 33-year-old, who has scored eight goals this season, was forced off during the first half of last weekend’s defeat at Walsall with a hamstring injury.

Midfielders Alan McCormack and James Olayinka (foot) have both stepped up their recovery, but will not be rushed back into action.

Forward Harry Smith (ankle) and midfielder Shaun McWilliams (knee) are both longer-term absentees.

Exeter will have goalkeeper Jared Thompson available after the 20-year-old signed a short-term deal as a free agent.

Thompson, whose contract at Chelsea expired during the summer, was on the bench for the midweek Trophy semi-final against Portsmouth.

Manager Matt Taylor should recall the likes of experienced defender Dean Moxey and midfielder Randell Williams after naming a mixed side for the dramatic 3-2 defeat on Tuesday night.

The Grecians are second on goal difference, level on points with leaders Swindon, having won their past three league matches.
