Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wigan Athletic and Northampton Town, the two teams who are level on points in the League One table, face each other at DW Stadium in what is expected to be a close encounter. Wigan aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to MK Dons, and they are desperate to put an end to their five-game winless run in the league. Keep in mind that the hosts will be without attacker Will Keane against Northampton as the 27-year-old suffered an injury in the midweek defeat.
The visitors, on the other hand, suffered a massive 4-0 loss at Portsmouth in their last league match, and given their three-game losing run on the road, Wigan Athletic will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. In their last meeting in the League One Wigan defeated Northampton thanks to Nick Powell’s goal.
Highlighted Player (Nathan Cameron):
Born in Birmingham, England, on November 21, 1991, Nathan Cameron is a professional footballer who plays for Macclesfield Town as a defender. Cameron is a product of the Coventry City football school, and he continued wearing the sky blue shirt at the senior level.
He made 48 appearances in the league for Coventry City, but he played for the likes of Nuneaton Town (loan), Northampton Town (loan), and Bury as well before joining Macclesfield Town. Nathan Cameron has one cap for the England U20 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
The 188-cm-tall defender made his Macclesfield Town debut in the League two in a 2-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons on November 17, 2018. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 25 shirt at Macclesfield Town.
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.
