Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Sixfields Stadium pits together Northampton Town and Swindon Town, the two bottom-table sides. Northampton did well to beat Shrewsbury on the road on Matchday 2, but they have been struggling in the League One ever since. The Cobblers are eager to put an end to their four-game losing run, and, one thing is for sure, the hosts are going to leave their hearts on the field.
Swindon, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Sunderland at the weekend, with the team extending their losing run in all competitions to four games. Considering that both sides are eager to get back on course in the English third tier, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. It has to be noted that 10 goals in total have been netted in Northampton’s last three games in all competitions.
