|Current form guides:||P||W||D||L||F||A||P|
Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore will choose from Drewe Broughton and Craig McAllister to partner Adam Le Fondre in attack.
Full back Dale Tonge and forward Tom Pope are out for the season but Gavin Gunning could return after being rested following International U19 duty with Ireland. Paul Warne and Kevin Ellison may also be in contention for starting places.
Cobblers winger Liam Davis is a doubtful after missing the 1-0 defeat by Notts County on Saturday. Striker Adebayo Akinfenwa is unlikely to play with an ankle problem, otherwise they are nearly at full strength.
