Richards blow for Cobblers
Northampton striker Marc Richards
Richards has scored two goals in nine appearances this season
Northampton striker Marc Richards will be out for six to seven weeks after a scan showed he strained medial knee ligaments in training last Friday.

Cobblers boss Colin Calderwood said: "The good news is he does not need an operation, which we feared he might.

"Marc has been in a lot of pain since the incident, which was innocuous. He jumped for the ball and fell badly.

"It is a blow to Marc and we will miss him but his absence will give opportunities to other players."
