Dunn: Fit to play for Cobblers

Dunn: Fit to play for Cobblers

Goalkeeper Chris Dunn has declared himself fit for Saturday's crunch clash.

Dunn has missed the last three games with a facial injury but will come back after replacement Steve Collis hurt his thigh during the 2-2 draw at Stockport on Monday.

Manager Gary Johnson said: "Chris is available for selection. He wants to play and he has more than proved to me that he is both physically and mentally ready for the game.

"He will probably have to wear some sort of protective mask or helmet but the injury is well healed and he's ready to play."

On-loan Doncaster defender Byron Webster picked up a hamstring injury against Rotherham on Good Friday and will miss the rest of the run in as the Cobblers look to stay in the Football League.

Striker Leon McKenzie will also miss the rest of the season after he picked up a thigh injury at Stockport but fellow forward Billy McKay is now fit after a dislocated elbow.

A first win in 19 games could be enough to secure their place in League Two if Barnet lose at Accrington.

Peter Winn will miss out through suspension.

The striker was banned for the crucial 1-0 win over Port Vale, which kept alive the club's hopes of reaching the play-offs in their first season in League Two, after being shown a straight red in the previous match.

Rob Sinclair started in attack against the Valiants and looks set to continue as the Hertfordshire side seek to secure a top-seven finish.

Lawrie Wilson bagged the decisive goal in that game but was later substituted, although he should be okay to line up again for Graham Westley's side.

Having been crowned champions of the Blue Square Bet Premier last season, Stevenage are aiming to make it back-to-back promotions.

They have won seven of their last 10 games, losing just once.
