LUFC - Northampton Town v Leeds United preview

Northampton Town and Leeds United meet again for the third time in just eighteen days on Tuesday night.

In the first game Northampton took an early lead through Scott McGleish, on the half hour mark The Cobblers were reduced to ten men when Giles Coke was sent off for two bookable offences.
Leeds equalised soon after when Andy Robinson converted a penalty kick after a foul on Jonny Howson.
Leeds dominated proceedings but couldn`t break down a very resolute Northampton defence.

The two clubs met in the replay last Monday and Leeds ran out comprehensive winners 5-2 with Jermaine Beckford bagging a tremendous hat trick.

Colin Larkin (thigh), Adebayo Akinfenwa (calf), Abdul Osman (knee) and Chris Doig (hamstring) are all out.

Their only injury doubts are defenders Rui Marques, Paul Huntington and Alan Sheehan.
