Demontagnac, 24, pulled up in pain after 32 minutes at Valley Parade on Saturday while attempting to sprint for the ball.

Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd does not expect the player to feature again during the last four matches of the campaign as the club chase automatic promotion from npower League Two.

"I think that will be his season over," said Boothroyd following the 1-0 defeat to the Bantams.

"We don't really know at this stage but it will probably be a fairly long one.

"It's that stage of the season where you get these things. He's done well for us recently and it will be a blow.

"But it will give Jake Robinson the chance to have a run in the side and show us what he can do."

Demontagnac joins club captain Kelvin Langmead (knee), Clive Platt (calf) and Alex Nicholls (broken leg) on the Northampton injured list.

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
