Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Northampton Town will be aiming to build on a 2-0 win over Burton Albion when they take on Cambridge United on Matchday 19. The Saddlers managed to escape the relegation zone, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to rejoin the playoffs race. Experienced forward Sam Hoskins returns to the starting XI after the 30-year-old was rested in the EFL Trophy defeat to MK Dons.
The Yellows, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss at Peterborough and given their poor away record, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash. As for the away team, both Gordon and Ahadme are pushing for a start after the duo came off the bench in the last league fixture. In their last encounter in a competitive match Cambridge United defeated Northampton 2-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
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.
