Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Northampton will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Northampton and Port Vale when they take on Barnsley on Matchday 9. The Cobblers have been struggling in front of goal of late and, as a result, boss Jon Brady is likely to make changes to the starting XI. All McGowan, Simpson, and Monthe are pushing for a start, with McGowan, Simpson, and Monthe likely to drop to the bench.
The Tykes, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 3-2 loss to Portsmouth and given their fine away record in the new League One campaign, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the visiting team. As for the away side, Hungary midfielder Callum Styles should be recalled to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the midweek defeat.
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.
