Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Northampton Town and Peterborough United go head to head at Sixfields Stadium on day 5 of the new League One campaign. Northampton aim to bounce back from back-to-back losses to Hull and Bristol Rovers, but they will try to get back on course without suspended midfielder Joe Martin, who was sent off at the weekend. The Posh, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Swindon, with the team climbing to the fourth position in the standings.
Peterborough are still seen as one of the main candidates for promotion, and they should take advantage of the current atmosphere in Northampton’s dressing room. Seeing that there will be no spectators at Sixfields Stadium due to the fierce of coronavirus spread, away win should be considered. Jonson Clarke-Harris, who scored a brace in the triumph over Swindon, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
