Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Sixfields Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Northampton Town and Oxford United. The Cobblers have been involved in some high-scoring games of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Oxford United.
The Yellows, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over Burton Albion and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. When the two teams in the EFL Trophy three months ago Oxford United defeated Northampton Town 3-1 and yet another high-scoring game is on the cards. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Portugal midfielder Ruben Rodrigues, who scored a brace in the last league match.
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.
