Football - Cobblers wait on trio

Chris Hackett, Joe Widdowson and Roy O'Donovan are all touch and go for Northampton's home clash against Dagenham.

PA Sport Report

Winger Hackett missed last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Oxford as a precaution due to a groin injury, as did full-back Widdowson, who is struggling with a neural complaint.

Striker O'Donovan overcame an ankle problem to start at the Kassam Stadium but has since suffered ill-effects. Boss Aidy Boothroyd must now decide whether the trio are fit enough to feature against the Daggers.

Clive Platt (calf), Matt Heath (thigh), Alex Nicholls (broken leg), Kelvin Langmead (knee) and Lewis Hornby (back) all remain sidelined.
