Fellow midfielder Tyrese Fornah has missed the last couple of matches with a back issue and is a doubt once again.

Defender Ryan Nyambe has had an operation on his damaged quad, sustained in February, which will keep him out of action for the remainder of the campaign.

Goalkeeper Josh Vickers is progressing well on the road to recovery from a quad problem but is yet to return to full training with the squad.

Striker James Collins remains out of action after being sidelined with a knee injury in the 3-0 victory at Exeter City in February but is stepping up his workload.

Striker Tyreece John-Jules suffered a hamstring tear in the defeat against Reading in January that will keep him out of action for the rest of the season.

Long-term absentee Jake Rooney remains out after suffering a ACL knee injury in September and remains a way off a return to full training, although he is making excellent progress.

Pre-Match Thoughts

Head Coach Paul Warne spoke to RamsTV ahead of the trip to Northampton on Saturday.

He said: "Northampton will want to win at home, of course. We'll take a good away following, so that always gives the home team a boost as well. They are really well coached and they will want to win. It's a tough time of the season, it makes it difficult to get back-to-back wins. I know that this game at the weekend will be as hard as Bolton was last week."

Defender Eiran Cashin previewed Saturday's match against the Cobblers when he spoke to RamsTV on Thursday.

He said: "We can only control the controllables which is winning games. If we win our seven remaining games then we're up, it's as simple as that."
