Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Northampton Town and Plymouth Argyle take on each other at Sixfields Stadium in the League One round 33. The Cobblers aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Swindon Town, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Plymouth. Managerless hosts have no fresh selection worries ahead of the midweek game. You should bear in mind that Northampton are after their first home win of the year.
The Pilgrims, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-0 loss to Peterborough, with the team beating Lincoln 4-3 in their last league match. Plymouth aim to keep their promotion hopes alive, and they are surely capable of beating the rock-bottom side behind closed doors at Sixfields Stadium. Both George Cooper and Gary Sawyer are likely to miss the game through injuries for the visiting team.
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 (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
