Bury boss David Flitcroft will welcome Daniel Nardiello back into the fold when he takes charge of Bury for the first time against Northampton.

The on-loan Rotherham forward was ineligible for his side's 2-1 defeat to Cambridge in the FA Cup but returns for this clash.

Former Barnsley manager Flitcroft, who moved to the JD Stadium on Monday, has no fresh injury or suspension concerns ahead of his first game at the helm of the club where he spent two years as a player.

Defender Shaun Beeley missed the cup defeat to the U's with a knock, but he has returned to training and is expected to play some part.

Izale McLeod and Stuart Dallas are back in the frame for Northampton's trip to fellow strugglers Bury.

On-loan striker McLeod was unable to feature in last weekend's disappointing FA Cup exit at Grimsby having played for MK Dons earlier in the competition, while fellow loanee Dallas was denied permission to play by parent club Brentford.

Fit-again striker Roy O'Donovan will be hoping for involvement at Gigg Lane having returned to the fold following his hernia operation.

Long-term absentees Kelvin Langmead (knee), Lewis Hornby (back) and Alex Nicholls (broken leg) remain unavailable.
