Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Weston Homes Stadium will host Friday’s football game between Peterborough United and Northampton Town. Thanks to a 3-0 win at Swindon, Peterborough moved one step closer to securing automatic promotion to the Championship, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season as Sunderland are still breathing down their neck. Peterborough are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their 15th home win of the process.
Northampton, on the other hand, are fighting hard to survive in the League One, but given the Posh’s brilliant home record, we do not believe that the underdogs are capable of grabbing something from Friday’s showdown. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Siriki Dembele, who scored a brace in the victory over the Robins.
Highlighted Player (Mark Beevers):
Born in Barnsley, England on November 21, 1989, Mark Beevers is a 193-cm tall defender who plays for Peterborough United. The product of Sheffield Wednesday football school made 140 appearances in the league for the Owls before signing a permanent deal with fellow Championship club Millwall.
Mark Beevers scored 7 goals in 117 appearances for the Lions, playing for the club until the 2016 transfer window. The English defender then moved to Bolton where he scored 11 goals in 121 appearances in the league.
In May 2019 Mark Beevers signed a three-year deal with Peterborough United. He made his League One debut with the Posh in a 3-1 loss to Fleetwood Town on August 3, 2019. His main position is centre-back, but he is used as a left-back as well. His preferred foot is left and he has a contract with Peterborough United which should expire on June 30, 2022.
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.
