Chris Maxwell: Hoping to start

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Fleetwood Town and Northampton Town at Highbury Stadium.

Graham Alexander must decide whether to keep goalkeeper Chris Maxwell in his line-up for Fleetwood's home fixture with Northampton.

Stopper Scott Davies was dropped in midweek for the first time all season in favour of Maxwell, recently back from a loan spell with non-league Cambridge where he kept 16 clean sheets, as the Cod Army drew 1-1 with Wycombe.

Alexander was voted League Two manager of the month for January yet his side have not won in three February games since, although their cause is aided by returning striker Jamille Matt (ankle), who made his first appearance since October in a substitute's cameo at the Chairboys and will hope to continue his comeback.

Midfielder Jeff Hughes remains on the sidelines having recently broken his leg in a game with Hartlepool.

Northampton will check on captain Lee Collins ahead of their trip to promotion-chasing Fleetwood.

The centre-back missed Tuesday's massive 2-1 victory at fellow strugglers Torquay due to a foot injury sustained last weekend against Plymouth.

Collins now faces a race against time to prove his fitness, although Gregor Robertson stepped in for his debut at Plainmoor and is ready if required once again.

Striker John Marquis will also be looking for more game time having made his bow off the bench in midweek after arriving on loan until the end of the season. Long-term absentees Kelvin Langmead, Alex Nicholls and Lewis Hornby remain sidelined.
