Our prediction for this League 2 match:
There will be fireworks when Cheltenham Town and Northampton Town face each other at Jonny-Rocks Stadium in what is expected to be a very exciting game. Both teams are eyeing promotion to the League One, but the hosts are seen as favourites to win the postponed fixture. The Robins are on a three-game winning run in the League Two, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Northampton.
Reuben Reid, who came from the bench to score the winner against Mansfield Town, is pushing for a start. The Cobblers, on the other hand, did well to beat Exeter City 2-0 at the weekend, with Vadaine Oliver breaking the deadlock in the first minute. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Northampton attacker Andrew Williams remains in the recovery room. In their last away game in the League Two the Cobblers suffered a 3-2 loss to Walsall.
Highlighted Player (Rohan Ince):
Rohan Ince is a professional footballer who plays for Cheltenham Town as a defensive midfielder. Born in Whitechapel, England on November 8, 1992, Ince started his football development at the Chelsea football academy.
However, despite signing a professional contract with the Blues, he did not see any game action at senior level. After playing for the Chelsea reserve set-up from 2010 to 2013, he moved to Brighton in the winter of 2013. Rohan Ince made 72 appearances in the league for the Seagulls, and he played for the likes of Fulham, Swindon Town, and Bury on loan as well before joining Cheltenham Town in 2019.
The 191-cm tall defensive midfielder made his League two debut with the Robins in a 1-0 loss to Leyton Orient on August 3, 2019. His primary position is defensive midfield, but he is used as a centre-back as well. Rohan Ince has dual citizenship (England/Jamaica).
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.
