Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth will be looking to stay in the race for top position when they host Northampton at their Fratton Park on Matchday 9. The Pompey have been producing excellent displays in the League One ever since they suffered a 1-0 loss to Doncaster, and they are eager to extend their winning run to three games. John Marquis has found his goalscoring touch of late, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
It has to be noted that Portsmouth are eyeing their only second home win of the season. Northampton, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Charlton Athletic. The Cobblers failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Charlton Athletic, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing side. In their last meeting at Fratton Park in the League One Portsmouth defeated Northampton 3-1.
Highlighted Player (Ellis Harrison):
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.
