Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Whaddon Road pits together Cheltenham Town and Northampton. The Robins are eager to escape the relegation zone and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Cobblers. Scotland defender Liam Smith is pushing for a start after coming off the bench in a goalless draw with Portsmouth, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team. Northampton, meanwhile, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Peterborough.
The weekend triumph gave them a confidence boost, but beating Cheltenham on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. A man to watch in the visiting team will be Mitchell Pinnock, who scored a late winner in the victory over the Posh on Matchday 3.
Highlighted Team (Cheltenham):
Founded in 1887 by a local teacher Albert Close White, Cheltenham Town are an English club that compete in League Two. The Robins wear white jerseys with red stripes and white shorts when playing at home, while sky blue is the dominant colour of their away kit.

The match was played at Wembley Stadium in front of 26,837 spectators, with John Eaton scoring the only goal of the match. The Robins have won Leamington Hospital Cup, Midland Floodlit Cup, Gloucestershire Senior Cup, Cheltenham League and Gloucestershire Senior Amateur North Challenge Cup as well.
The likes of Gloucester City and Hereford are seen as Cheltenham’s traditional rivals, while, in more recent years, Forest Green Rovers have been the club’s main rivals. A 12-0 win over Chippenham Rovers (November 2, 1935), with the team suffering their biggest defeat against Tydfil (1-10) on March 8, 1952.
