Northampton caretaker boss Dean Austin says his all-but relegated side will not give struggling Oldham an easy ride as the curtain comes down on the season.

Saturday evening marks the last round of League One fixtures, with the Cobblers needing to beat their opponents by a massive nine-goal deficit to remain in the English third tier.

Kevin van Veen is eyeing a place in the starting line-up after returning - following a dead leg - for the final 12 minutes off the bench in the 1-0 defeat at Walsall last time out.

Fellow Dutch striker Kevin Luckassen (thigh) was still struggling last weekend and could miss out again.

Visitors Oldham sit one point above the drop zone and need to at least equal local rivals Rochdale's result at home to play-off hopefuls Charlton to retain their League One status.

Boss Richie Wellens was buoyed by a goalless draw at Doncaster last time out with form on their side - they have lost just one of their last eight matches.

Latics will be boosted by the return of full-back Wilfried Moimbe following a three-match ban, while fellow defender Cameron Dummigan may yet be fit enough for a place among the substitutes.

League One Player of the Month nominee Duckens Nazon came close to breaking the deadlock against Rovers and will be looking to lead from the front.
