Morgan: Sidelined for two months

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Macclesfield Town and Northampton at Moss Rose.

Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson again looks set to be without a number of players when the Cobblers visit.

Paul Morgan faces another two months out after having a plate inserted to help mend his broken arm removed, while Jack Cudworth is also a long way from returning following ankle surgery.

Waide Fairhurst has been nursing an ankle injury but has returned to training and could be fit to play some part at Sixfields.

Tom Fisher is making good progress following his knee ligament injury but is still a couple of weeks from fitness.

Macclesfield held leaders Morecambe to a 1-1 draw in midweek and Simpson said: "I've got a very good squad here and we more than matched the league leaders."

Meanwhile, Northampton boss Gary Johnson has a mounting injury list to contend with.

Seth Nana Ofori-Twumasi (knee), Byron Webster (foot), Andy Holt (collarbone) and Bas Savage (foot) are ruled out, while a late decision will be made on the fitness of Arron Davies (hamstring).

Nick McKoy added to the Cobblers' problems when he was sent off during the 3-0 victory at AFC Wimbledon in midweek.

The midfielder had just served a one-match suspension after receiving a red card against Southend and will now begin a four-match ban following his second dismissal in as many matches.

Striker Marlon Jackson made his full debut against AFC Wimbledon after arriving on loan from Bristol City and looks set to keep his place in the XI.
