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.

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
