Northampton V Gillingham at Sixfields Stadium : Match Preview

28 April 2017

Neal Eardley doubtful for Northampton

Neal Eardley is a doubt for Northampton's final game of the season as the Cobblers prepare to host Gillingham at Sixfields on Sunday.

Eardley has struggled with a calf injury and Sunday could come too soon for the Welsh right-back.

David Buchanan is in line to return for Justin Edinburgh's side after serving a one-match suspension.

John-Joe O'Toole (groin), who is out of contract with the Cobblers at the end of the season, remains absent.

Gillingham, who are just a point clear of the relegation zone, will be without suspended midfielder Bradley Dack.

The Gills lost an appeal against Dack's additional two-match ban imposed by the Football Association following a red card at MK Dons after dissent to the referee.

Fit-again Chris Herd could come back in for a first appearance since mid-March, while on-loan Bournemouth forward Joe Quigley will be assessed after missing last weekend's defeat against promotion-chasing Fleetwood.

Midfielder Scott Wagstaff is set to remain on the sidelines with an Achilles problem. Defender Bradley Garmston (hamstring) continues his recovery, while Aaron Morris (knee) has been a long-term absentee.
