Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After playing out a goalless draw with Wigan Athletic at DW Stadium, Fleetwood Town will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Northampton Town in the League One round 26. The Fishermen failed to win the previous six league fixtures, but we believe that the time has come for Simon Wiles’ troops to put an end to the negative trend.
The Cobblers aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Lincoln, but given their poor away record in the League One, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Fleetwood’s party at Highbury Stadium. Joel Coleman is out of contention with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team. Northampton boss Keith Curle has no fresh injury worries ahead of Tuesday’s showdown. Anyhow, home win should be considered as the Fishermen are desperate to put an end to the negative trend.
Highlighted Player (Josh Morris):
Josh Morris is a product of Blackburn Rovers football school who plays for Fleetwood Town in the League One. Morris’ main position is left midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both left-back and central midfielder as well.
The English footballer started his senior career at Blackburn Rovers and he played for the likes of Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town on loan before moving to Bradford City in the summer of 2015. Josh Morris, though, found his best form at Scunthorpe United, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances for the club in the league.
Before the start of the 2018/2019 League One season Morris re-joined Fleetwood Town, signing a two-year contract with the Fishermen. Josh Morris scored his first goal of the season in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium. His contract with Fleetwood Town should expire on June 30, 2021.
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.
