Grant McCann's men can go above their rivals with a victory with just one point seperating the two sides ahead of kick-off.

The Posh boss has confirmed that Marcus Maddison and Michael Bostwick have returned to full health after missing the defeat at Fleetwood due to illness.

Jermaine Anderson, Lee Angol and Brad Inman are still sidelined, but Angol and Inman are making excellent progress in their recovery from long-term injuries.

The Cobblers could include two former Posh players in their side with Gabriel Zakuani and Harry Beautyman available for selection.

Experienced midfielder Matt Taylor and Jak McCourt are both serving suspensions, the latter was sent-off for a second bookable offence in the home defeat to Millwall at Sixfields.

McCann said: "It is actually a regret of mine not to play against Northampton. We were never in the same league during my playing days with the club. I know all about the rivalry though and what it means to our supporters.

"It is a game we are all looking forward to. The lads have trained well today (Monday) and a game under the lights in front of a big crowd is the perfect game for us following the weekend.

"I am sure the supporters will create a good atmosphere. The fans have been talking about the game for a number of weeks now and there has been a lot of anticipation haead of the fixture," McCann said.

Supporters are advised to arrive in good time for kick-off with a big crowd expected at the ABAX Stadium. Turnstiles will be open over an hour ahead of kick-off.

Fans are also urged to join in with a minute's applause in the 32nd minute (minute 32-33) for Paul McCann who sadly died at the age of 32 following the Great Eastern Run. His family will be at the game.
