>Leon to be handed debut against Shrimpers

>Northampton Town v Southend United
League Two
Saturday, September 11th 2010

It’s the game that everyone wanted tickets for to be able to get a place at Anfield so it sounds like a near capacity crowd is expected tomorrow afternoon for the visit of Southend. Sammo could hand Leon McKenzie a debut but depending on the new signings’ match fitness he could be more likely to be handed a place on the bench.

Still searching for the first league win of the season, the Cobblers need to recover from the dramatic late equaliser by Aldershot last week but come up against a Southend side that are improving in times of uncertainty. The Shrimpers’ fans will be grateful just to have a team this season and under new manager Paul Sturrock are slowly turning the corner.

The visitors, who could recall Barry Corr for the game and also have Peter Gilbert in their ranks after his move from the Cobblers in the summer, have won back to back league games and handed Torquay their first defeat of the season last weekend in a 2-1 win at Roots Hall.

So with a big crowd and a big atmosphere there’s plenty to get the juices flowing tomorrow and hopefully those illusive three points will be in the bag by 4:50pm!
