Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
By beating the likes of Salford City and Oldham Athletic, Burton Albion set up a meeting with Northampton Town in the third round of the FA Cup. The Brewers have been struggling to live up to their expectations in the League One this season, and, as a result, they sit in the bottom half of the standings ahead of the visit of Northampton. Burton Albion footballers are eager to give fans some cheer, therefore, we predict that they will go all guns blazing at the League Two side.
The visitors, on the other hand, did well to beat Chippenham Town and Notts County in the previous two rounds, but they face an uphill task against the Brewers. Considering that Northampton Town were hammered by Crawley Town 4-0 in their last away game in the League Two, we are tempted to put our money on Burton Albion.

Highlighted Team (Northampton):
Northampton are a professional football club that compete in the League Two, the English fourth tier. The Cobblers play their home matches at Sixfields Stadium, the venue that has a capacity of 7,798. Northampton Town are well known for their claret and white home kit, while black is the dominant colour of their away jersey.
Northampton did well to make it to the Charity Shield final in 1909, with the team suffering a 2-0 loss to Newcastle United in the title game. The Cobblers are holding the record for the shortest time taken to secure promotion from the bottom tier to the top flight and relegated back down to the bottom again. Northampton Town managed to do so in only nine years.
Peterborough united are regarded as the club’s main rivals, with other significant rivalries including the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons, Cambridge United, Coventry City, and Rushden & Diamonds.
