Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Sixfields Stadium pits together Northampton Town and Fleetwood Town, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 15. Northampton occupy 17th position in the standings, only two points clear of the relegation zone, while Fleetwood are on the verge of regaining their spot in top six. The Cobblers have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team losing to Burton Albion, while sharing the spoils with Rochdale in their last league match.
Nonetheless, you should bear in mind that Northampton Town have recorded no more than one win at home ground in the 2020/21 League One campaign. The Fishermen, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Sunderland in their last league match. Considering that Fleetwood Town have been scoring goals for fun of late, we believe that they are capable of beating the Cobblers behind closed doors.
Highlighted Player (Joseph Mills):
Joseph Mills is an Aston Villa product who plays for Northampton Town in the League One. Mills moved to Southampton in 2006, and he continued playing for the Saints at senior level. After ending his loan spells with Scunthorpe United and Doncaster Rovers, the pacey left-back joined Reading in 2011, but he made no more than 15 appearances for the Royals in the league.
After his short spell with Burnley, Joseph Mills moved to Oldham Athletic, and it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Perth Glory, Shrewsbury Town, and Forest Green Rovers as well before moving to Northampton Town.
Mills was born in Swindon, England on October 30, 1989, and he wears the No. 23 shirt with the Cobblers. His primary position is left-back, but coaches use him as a left midfielder as well. He has a contract with Northampton Town which should expire in June 2022.
Highlighted Team (Fleetwood):
Known for their attacking style of play, Fleetwood Town are a professional football club based in Fletwood, Lancashire. The Fishermen play their home matches at Highbury Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 5,327 (2,672 seated), with the team wearing red and white shirts in home matches.
On the other hand, Fleetwood footballers are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels. The original club was founded back in 1908 under the name of Fleetwood FC and 69 years later they were re-established as Fleetwood Town F.C. In 1998 the club was renamed to Fleetwood Wanderers after the second reformation.
Legendary England footballer Joey Barton is considered one of the club’s most notable coaches. Barton, who was known for his incidents on the field, has been in charge since June 2, 2018. Neighbouring club Blackpool are regarded as one of Fleetwood’s main rivals. The Fishermen have built up rivalries with Morecambe and Preston North End as well.
