Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Following back-to-back defeats to Shrewsbury Town (0-2) and Portsmouth (1-4), Northampton Town will look to get back on course in League One when they take on Bolton on Saturday afternoon. The Cobblers suffered a dip in form and they face yet another uphill task against the promotion hopefuls. To make things even more complicated for the home side, forward Sam Hoskins suffered an injury in the last league match.
The Hatters, on the other hand, aim to climb to the playoffs places. Bolton are eyeing their ninth away win of the process and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Northampton’s dressing room. Both Will Forrester and Randell Williams remain in the recovery room, while January signing Aaron Collins should make his Bolton debut this weekend. You should know that Bolton are eyeing their fourth consecutive win over Northampton in the League One.
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.
