                                                    Still no Caddis for Robins Swindon will continue to be without captain Paul Caddis when they take on Northampton.

                                                    The right-back has not played since the 4-0 victory over Dagenham on March 6 because of an ankle injury and has been pencilled in for a comeback against Plymouth at the County Ground next weekend.

                                                    Winger Matt Ritchie missed the two away victories against Barnet and Morecambe over the course of the past week after being substituted with a minor knock during the goalless home draw with Bristol Rovers, but the former Portsmouth man could come back into the reckoning against the Cobblers.

                                                    On-loan forward Jonathan Tehoue has been told he has no future at the club by manager Paolo Di Canio and will therefore not be part of the matchday squad.

                                                    Boss Aidy Boothroyd will select from an unchanged squad for Northampton's trip to the County Ground.

                                                    Changes are probably in the offing for the Cobblers' second game in four days.

                                                    Defenders Byron Webster and Anthony Charles and forwards Lewis Young and Brett Williams were on the bench for the 2-1 home win over Oxford.

                                                    Charles, Young and Williams, who scored the winning goal in injury time, all got some game time on Friday and will be pushing for starts.

                                                    The victory over Oxford moved Northampton nine points clear of the relegation zone but Boothroyd said: "I don't think you can say we are safe.

                                                    Robins close in on promotion Swindon took another step towards promotion with a 1-0 victory against Northampton at the County Ground.

                                                    Lee Holmes' second-half strike settled matters as the Robins moved seven points clear at the top of npower League Two.

                                                    After a drab first half, the winger, on loan from Southampton, produced the game's decisive moment in a fixture that lacked any true quality.

                                                    Seven minutes after the interval he whipped in a cross which evaded everyone and skipped off the surface into the top corner. From then on the game sprung into life and Paolo Di Canio's could have extended their lead, only for top scorer Paul Benson to nod wide from another Holmes cross.

                                                    Northampton, meanwhile, showed little in attack and rarely looked like equalising. The visitors' day was summed up when Brett Williams fired over from the edge of the area in the 80th minute.
